Packed Lunches

At our Meet the Teacher evening some parents asked about school packed lunches and what a healthy packed lunch consists of.

According to NHS choice 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

As a rule aim to give your child: 

  1. A main e.g. a sandwich / bagel / pasta / vegetable sticks with humus / pitta bread / wrap etc
  2. Add some fruit
  3. Add a desert e.g. yoghurt, popcorn, cake, jelly (no block chocolate please).
  4. Don’t forget a drink—non sugary juice or water.

 

Please remember that we are a nut free school (so no Nutella / chocolate spread, or anything else that might contain nuts) and that crisps are for Friday’s packed lunch only.
