Food - Legislation and Guidance

Food - Legislation and Guidance

By law, any early years providers that handle food directly to children must at least register with the Food Standards Agency (FSA) 28 days before opening.
However, if you are a childminder the details you submitted when registering with Ofsted will be used to automatically register with the FSA, and so a separate registration is not needed.  

Register with the FSA
