if a child has certain.food requirements.or has a certain food intollerance. or allergy and has to have certain food that dosent contain things that the child is intollerant of.i dont think the minder should provide the food in those cases.the parents should provide that.i did that once bfore.and it cost a fortune.i make a point of asking.if the child has any food intolerances.or allergies.
food allergies Can be life-threatening .food intolerance is not

Most minders include food, however if your child has special food requirements or is weaning some minders may request for parents to provide food. Depends on the minder really I would say.

Hi,

Do minders charge a little extra if parents do not supply food for their kids (cared for in the minders home)...if so what is the extra rate usually?
(I started a thread below this one) it is something that popped up in the interviews...parents thinking their kids being minded in someone else´s home means the food is included in the rate?

Thanks
