A LOCAL nursery has been presented with a Gold Award for their high standards of healthy eating.
Butterflies Day Nursery, of Meltham, gained the Kirklees Healthy Choice Award for high standards of food hygiene, healthy food options, and a smoke-free environment.
Elaine Short is joint owner of the nursery with her daughter Danielle Anderson.
She said: "The nursery has always put a strong emphasis on healthy eating as we believe it is vital that good, healthy food is brought into a child's diet at a young age.
"We were first awarded with this 11 years ago, but it is only recently that the awards have been broken down into Bronze, Silver and Gold."
The nursery received a certificate from Kirklees Environmental Health, in recognition of their superb dedication to healthy eating.
