How Healthy is Your Child’s Lunch?

We have been noticing that many of the children are bringing unhealthy packet food to school for their playtime snack and/or lunch. This food is very high in salt and sugar and not suitable for children to eat regularly. The teachers, and the rubbish in our school grounds, tell us that a lot of our children are having this food more than once a week. The teachers will be talking to children and contacting homes where this is a pattern, to remind families that we are a ‘Health promoting’ school and our school policies say that this type of food is special treat food, not to be eaten or brought to school for lunch. We remind you that each day your child will be given fruit at play time.
