BestStart centres offer Healthy Heart approved meals using fresh and healthy food.
In addition centres ensure there is regular physical activity and movement through daily exercise programmes. Parents report that their children eat vegetables at childcare that they might never eat at home- this might be partly because they see other children doing it!
