During morning snack we will provide your child with fruit (e.g. oranges, apples, mangos, bananas, grapes, pears), vegetables (e.g. cucumber, celery, tomatoes, carrots) and water. During this time there is also outdoor play. For lunchtime we ask parents to send a healthy packed lunch with their child each day as our school is working towards the National Healthy Schools Standard. A good meal should contain a balance of different types of food. The following are some recommended healthy packed lunch choices;
All kinds of wholemeal bread, rolls, chapattis, pita bread, wholemeal biscuits, bran biscuits, cooked brown rice and wholemeal pasta;
At least two servings of vegetables, carrots, celery, cucumber, lettuce, cabbage, peppers, tomatoes and radishes; cooked lean meat such as ham, turkey, tinned fish, smoked fish, hard boiled eggs, cooked beans or pulses.
If you are to bring in milk for your child please bring skimmed or semi if possible.
Cheese especially low fat ones such as Edam or cottage cheese and yoghurt.
Please do not bring any of the following into school: Chocolate bars, crisps, biscuits, nuts, fizzy drinks or any drinks in glass bottles.
‘Particularly noteworthy is the school’s deployment
of teachers and therapists during lunch and break times
where they make a strong contribution to developing
pupils’s expressive language and imaginative skills as
they play.’ Ofsted Report 2011
