Healthy Eating Policy

Following input by parents and staff our school recommends the items below as part of our healthy eating policy:

To ensure good overall health children should go to bed at an appropriate time. They should have a proper breakfast daily which should include a cereal. Regular brushing of teeth should take place and children should be encouraged to participate in physical exercise.

In order to help the school environment we ask that all lunch wrappings and leftovers are brought home each day in the child’s school bag. We would also recommend that a re-usable easily opened drink container be used i.e. plastic bottle.

Each Friday children are permitted to bring one treat to school.

Children may be given lollipops as a treat or reward by the class teacher.

Recommended lunches

  1. Fruit / dried fruit / raisins / raw carrots / celery sticks / cherry tomatoes / fruit bags
  2. Sandwiches / rolls / baps / crackers / rice cakes / wraps
  3. Cold meat / tuna / salmon
  4. Egg / cheese (preferably not grated) / cheese slices / cheesestrings / nuts / peanuts

Sandwich fillings may include jam, peanut butter, chocolate spread

Yoghurts / creamed rice (Please ensure that your child has a spoon for yoghurt)
