Healthy Eating

As a school we actively promote healthy living.

 

 

Please remember to only send in water in your child’s water bottle which they will have access to in class. It is a proven fact that keeping hydrated improves concentration and therefore helps the children with their learning.

 

Our EYFS/KS1 pupils receive fruit each day as part of snack. We ask that families do not send in sweets, chocolate and crisps at break time except on treat Friday. 

 

Snacks for all children should be healthy. A healthy snack could be – fruit, bread sticks, cereal bar or fruit juice etc. 

 

Half the sugar children are having comes from snacks and sugary drinks. Too much sugar can lead to harmful fat building up inside and serious health problems, including painful tooth decay.

 

Fruit and vegetables are always the best choice, but if you're shopping for packaged snacks for your children, use this helpful tip: look for 100 calorie snacks, two a day max!

 

 

We do not allow sweets being brought into school in packed lunches. Again, this is not permitted especially items such as lollipops which could cause choking.

 

When sending fruit or vegetables in as part of snack or a packed lunch, we ask that they are cut into smaller pieces/slices to avoid and potential choking incidents.
