Packed Lunches

 

If you do decide to provide your child with a lunchbox instead of a school meal we ask you to ensure it is a healthy and nutrious meal. We recommend following the NHS Choices guidance: http://www.nhs.uk/Livewell/childhealth6-15/Pages/Lighterlunchboxes.aspx which we have summarised below:

 

Packed lunches should include:

  • A sandwich/sausage roll or pasta, rice, couscous, noodles. 
  • At least one portion of fruit and one portion of vegetables every day.
  • Dairy food such as milk, cheese, yoghurt, fromage frais or custard every day.
  • Water only, still or sparkling, fruit juice, semi-skimmed or skimmed milk, yoghurt or milk drinks and smoothies

 

 

Packed lunches will be regularly reviewed by teaching staff/catering staff/midday meal supervisors/pre-identified pupil packed lunch helpers. If a child regularly brings a packed lunch that does not offer a healthy balanced diet then the school will contact the parents to discuss this. Please note that pupils with special diets will be given due consideration.
