Nutrition

In order to feel fit, energetic and strong, you need to eat healthily. Not only as an adult but also as a child. CompaNanny’s nutrition policy is based on knowledge and experience, as well as scientific research and the guidelines provided by The Netherlands Nutrition Centre (Stichting Voedingscentrum Nederland). We continuously examine our policy against the latest knowledge and insights in the field of healthy nutrition for children. Because the world changes, so we change with it.

  • Babies: a bottle and a vegetable or fruit snack. When it comes to mealtimes, we ensure we take our time and create a calm atmosphere. We feed the little ones on our lap and these are important one-on-one moments for us.
  • Warm lunch (from 9 months old). A warm and organic lunch freshly prepared on a daily basis by Moekes Maaltijd. We always eat at the table in small groups.
  • Healthy snacks. Such as crackers with hummus or chicken slices, organic yoghurt and raw vegetables.
  • Vegetables and fruit. We ensure that your child becomes familiar with a wide variety of fruit and vegetables. For example, we eat watermelon in the summer and kale stamppot (mashed potato dish) in winter.
  • Drink: water or lukewarm tea.

The warm lunch from Moekes Maaltijd

For lunch we eat warm, varied dishes prepared by Moekes Maaltijd. Think: bulgur with vegetables on one day and pasta with fish on another. The meals are fresh, free from sugar and artificial additives, and contain little salt. What’s more, the portions are weighed. This all contributes to us being sure that the children are eating healthily and enough.

The Nannies involve the children in every eating moment, because talking about food increases the fun. While eating raw vegetables, for example, we tell them how tomatoes grow and we explain what it means to be a vegetarian. We talk to the children about what we see on our plate, about the textures, about how the food tastes and whether it is warm or cold. We notice that this ensures that children eat better and more consciously. At our table, we encourage children to eat with cutlery, but they are also allowed to use their hands. This is in line with our vision to discover food and makes it even more fun.
