If you have not pre-ordered a school meal, you must provide your child with a packed lunch.
According to NHS choices a balanced lunchbox should contain:
- starchy foods like bread, rice, potatoes or pasta
- protein foods like meat, fish, eggs or beans
- a dairy item, like cheese or yogurt
- vegetables or salad and a portion of fruit
We are increasingly concerned by the number of biscuits, cakes and crisps appearing in lunch boxes. Just as a healthy breakfast helps your child to concentrate and learn in the morning, a healthy lunch does so in the afternoon. Too much sugar causes problems with concentration.
We are a nut-free school. Please do not include items containing nuts in your child’s packed lunch (e.g. peanut butter sandwiches, mixed fruit/nut bags, cereal bars).
