Healthy Packed Lunch Guidelines

As we have Healthy School Status we would ask parent to use these guideline for the children's packed lunches.

At least one portion of fruit and one portion of vegetables every day

Meat, fish or other source of non-dairy protein (eg lentils, kidney beans, chickpeas, hummus, and falafel) every day.

Oily fish, such as salmon, at least once every three weeks.

A starchy food such as any type of bread, pasta, rice, couscous, noodles, potatoes or other type of cereals every day.

Dairy food such as milk, cheese, yoghurt, fromage frais or custard everyday.

Only water, still or sparkling, fruit juice, semi-skimmed or skimmed milk, yoghurt or milk drinks and smoothies.

Packed lunches should have limited items such as:

Crisps - Instead, include seeds, vegetables and fruit (with no added salt, sugar or fat). Savoury crackers or breadsticks served with fruit, vegetables or diary food are also a good choice.

Confectionary such as chocolate bars, chocolate-coated biscuits and sweets are not encouraged at school. Please only allow your child to eat cakes and biscuits as part of a balanced meal.

Meat products such as sausage rolls, individual pies, corned meat and sausages/chipolatas should only be included occasionally.

 

Health Snacks

At break we encourage healthy snacks. As part of the National Fruit & Milk Scheme all infant children receive a piece of fruit and drink of milk each day. Children have access to water in their classrooms throughout the day.
