I return to work in 2 weeks and have a nanny coming 3 days a week to care for DS. Freaking out big time, but that's a whole other thread
My question here is regarding lunch/food for the Nanny. Am I expected to provide this, or does she take care of herself (I.e. bring her own or walk to shops with DS). I don't mind either way, but don't know what the 'norm' is.
I of course will be providing and preparing all of the meals for DS each morning for her to simply feed him as required. TIA

Lunch/snacks for Nanny

Most families have things for sandwiches in the house, which was nice as sometimes it wasn't easy to go to the shops for lunch, the only other food I ate as a nanny was if the mum offered leftovers

Just ask her.

I think I would have sandwich fillings in the fridge (eg ham, cheese, tomatoes, relish, avocado) etc and show her where the bread is and invite her to help herself and to the fruit bowl too

I always offered our nannys to help themselves but they always brought their own. Good luck!

I take my own ... They bend over backwards trying to get me to help myself but I just can't!! Lol

Yes I would expect that she will bring her own.
My nanny started off bringing her own stuff but we kept making her eat the yummy stuff we have at home, so she stopped

When I was nannying I always organised my own food. Tea/coffee/bickies are always much appreciated though!

Oh, just wanted to add that we have always left some money for her to buy a treat for the kids etc, we also leave enough for her to buy herself a coffee too.

My sister was a nanny for 10 years before she had her own kids and her employers always provided food for her.
