The Food Standards Agency has developed the Childminders pack for registered childminders / childcarers on domestic premises who provide meals and drinks for the children in their care. In developing the pack, the Agency has worked with the National Childminding Association, Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales (CSSIW), local authorities and childminders themselves.
The 'Safer Food, Better Business' pack for childminders is intended to be a simple, practical and easy to use resource that is jargon free, providing childminders / childcarers with an effective aid to enable them to comply with the law but not overburden them with excessive record keeping.
It provides relevant information through safe methods for basic good food hygiene, a diary section with a 3 monthly review and an Action sheet for simple record keeping.
Copies of the Childminders pack can be ordered free of charge from EC Group on 0845 606 0667 or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org and quoting: FSA/1406/0709. Alternatively an online version of the pack can be downloaded from multimedia.food.gov.uk/multimedia/pdfs/publication/sfbb-tagd-childminders-fullcol-pack0513.pdf
