Nursery bosses and employees believe they should ban junk food and sweet treats in a lunch box found in a survey.
The latest data from the NHS show that 22.6% of four- and five-year-olds in the reception class are overweight or obese – 22.4% in the previous year. 9.7% of them are obese and 2.4% are serious obese.
A survey conducted by Daynurseries.co.uk by 1000 nursery owners, managers and staff, said 73% could ban unhealthy food. And 27% said there were children in the nursery who thought they were obese.
Sue Learner, Daynurseries.co.uk editor, said nurseries should be able to recommend food to their parents, but a ban was a far-off step.
