The new regulations give food businesses, including childminders legal responsibility to provide correct allergen information about the ingredients in meals and/or snacks they provide.
When I first look after a child I obtain information about whether or not they have any allergies, intolerances or health requirements. It’s important that parents notify me if this information changes.
I complete daily diaries for the children which include a list of what food they have eaten. If parents require more detailed information about the ingredients or allergens contained I will provide this.
