Packed lunches should be brought to school in a small plastic lunchbox, labelled with your child’s name. Although you know best what your child likes to eat, a balanced packed lunch may include the following.
- A filled roll or sandwich - starchy foods are filling and provide energy.
- The fillings for rolls and sandwiches could include e.g. lean meat, chicken, oily fish, egg or marmite - these contain the protein, iron and vitamins children need.
- Dairy products - cheese, yoghurt, fromage frais etc - these contain calcium and protein which is important in building strong bones.
- Fruit and vegetables - raw vegetables, fresh or dried fruit and canned fruit in juice, smoothies - these provide fibre and vitamins.
Please do not include nuts for safety reasons and because some children are allergic to them.
Confectionery such as chocolate coated biscuits and sweets and savoury snacks such as crisps are not allowed as part of a packed lunch. Please note that school dinner main meal and puddings are made to strict guidelines on the amount of sugar and salt added.
Water or milk is provided at lunchtime, so it is not necessary to include a drink.
For school trips, one 'treat' is allowed!
If your child is either starting or stopping packed lunches it is important that you let the office know before you make the change.
