It’s just as important to make sure the lunchbox your child takes to school provides a healthy, balanced lunch. This means plenty of foods that contain the nutrients that children need, and fewer foods that are high in sugar and saturated fat. A balanced packed lunch should contain:
Starchy foods: bread, rice, potatoes, pasta and others.
Protein foods: meat, fish, eggs, beans and others.
A dairy item: cheese or yoghurt.
Vegetables or salad, and a portion of fruit.
If your child forgets their packed lunch the kitchen will provide a school lunch and you will be charged £2.00 for the school dinner - we will never let a pupil go hungry.
To improve the health of the entire community by teaching children and families ways to establish and maintain life-long healthy and environmentally sustainable eating habits. The mission shall be accomplished through food education and skills (such as cooking and growing food), the food the school serves, core academic content in the classroom and cross curricular activities.
Children are encouraged to drink water at school particularly after P.E, active play and in the hot weather. School provides each pupil with a water bottle and water is also available through water fountains and classroom taps.
