I am writing in response to your email dated 30th April 2010 regarding a
press report about the Westfield Children's Centre and your request for
copies of policies based on which the decision to confiscate a cheese
sandwich was made.

Please note that the article was in relation to The Young Person's
Centre, a voluntary sector childcare provider operating from the
Westfield Children's Centre. This provision is not owned by the Council.

Young Person's Centre's policies.

Also attached for your information are two Council policies regarding
healthy eating for young children in the Wigan Borough entitled Healthy
Early Years and Sure Start Food Guidelines.

If you are unhappy with any aspect of this response, an independent
senior officer will review this decision. Please let me know if you
would like to arrange this.

You can also complain to the Information Commissioner, who is the
