Morning Snacks

Children in KS1 have a snack at morning break provided by the school. This consists of seasonal fruit or vegetables, e.g. an apple, satsuma, carrot.

For KS2 children we encourage parents/carers to provide a heathy snack such as a piece of fruit.


Packed Lunch Guidance

Suggestions for food to include in a healthy packed lunch:

  • At least one portion of fruit or vegetables every day.
  • Meat, fish or other source of non-dairy protein (e.g. lentils, beans, soya or hummus,) every day (usually as part of a sandwich, roll or salad).
  • Oily fish, such as pilchards, salmon or tuna occasionally.
  • A starchy food such as bread, pasta, rice, noodles, potatoes or other type of cereals every day.
  • Dairy food such as milk, cheese, yoghurt, fromage frais or custard.
  • A drink: water is best followed by semi-skimmed or skimmed milk, fruit juice, drinking yoghurt, milk drinks or smoothies.
  • Cereal bars rather than cakes and biscuits.
  • Pretzels, seeds, fruit, crackers and cheese, and vegetable or bread sticks with a dip.


Suggestions for food to include less often in a healthy packed lunch:

  • Snacks such as crisps.
  • Chocolate coated biscuits or wafers.
  • Cakes
  • Meat and pastry products such as sausage rolls or pies


The following foods must not be included in a packed lunch (these are all foods we have already asked children not to bring to school).

  • Confectionery such as chocolate bars and sweets as these are mostly unhealthy.
  • Nut or nut products (although they can be very healthy) because of the danger to other children with allergies.
  • Fizzy drinks as these are mostly unhealthy and are likely to spill and spoil other food.


Special diets and allergies

  • The school also recognises that some pupils may require special diets that do not allow for the standards to be met exactly. In this case parents are urged to be responsible in ensuring that packed lunches are as healthy as possible. For these reasons pupils are also not permitted to swap food items.
