Our on-site catering team produce a range of freshly cooked, delicious, healthy options on a daily basis.
School lunches currently cost £2.60 per day for children in Key Stage 2. Children can opt for packed lunches from home if preferred.
Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are eligible for universal free school meals.
All lunches must be ordered through ParentPay at least 48 hours in advance and paid for if applicable.
We promote healthy eating with the children and whilst they are encouraged to bring snacks for mid-morning break we would like these to be healthy snacks.
Please remember that we are a nut-free school due to the allergies of some of our children.
Healthier alternatives to sweet snacks
Chunks of melon, strawberries, grapes, or whatever you have to hand. Look out for fruit that’s in season, it’s likely to be cheaper.
Dried – how about just a few pieces of mango, banana or pineapple? Don’t forget, a small handful is about the right amount of dried fruit for kids.
Low fat fruit yogurt.
A handful of dry, reduced sugar cereal with a few raisins or sultanas.
Healthier savoury snacks
Instead of crisps, which can be high in salt and fat, try:
Pumpkin and sunflower seeds
Rice cakes with lower fat cream cheese and cucumber
Celery sticks filled with lower fat cream cheese
Homemade popcorn (without sugar or salt)
Unsalted rice cakes, crackers or oatcakes
Fun for dipping!
Snacking on veg also counts towards your 5 A DAY and ups your fibre intake too. So how about these:
Veg sticks - carrot, celery, baby sweetcorn, peppers and radishes with a reduced fat hummus dip
Sliced apple and a lower fat soft cheese to dip
Always check the label
To find out how much salt, saturated fat and sugar is in snacks, check the nutrition label on packaged food.
