Many parents attended and were given the opportunity to ask searching questions and discuss our Healthy School Policy, along with our Whole School Food Policy. These are available on request. The policy demonstrates our commitment to improving the Health of Children - a healthy body leads to a healthy mind. Some of the key points we discussed in our policy were:
We prefer children not to bring fizzy drinks in their lunchbox
We would prefer children to drink fruit juice or water
We prefer children not to bring sweets & chocolate in the lunchbox
We would prefer children to bring fruit, yoghurts, wafer biscuits
We prefer that children do not bring into school sweets to celebrate their birthday but instead explore other items, eg sharing a story/poem, giving stickers, a small game for class, a skipping rope for breaktime etc
Many thanks to Galloways for donating a reusable birthday cake to be used during KS1 class assemblies to celebrate birthdays. Children are encouraged to bring birthday treats in other than sweets or cakes.
6 STEPS TO A HEALTHY LUNCH BOX
Many thanks to all the parents who recently returned completed questionnaires that we hope helped in choosing food for your child's lunch box. This information has been passed on to our school cook Michelle.
DESIGN A HEALTHY LUNCHBOX COMPETITION
All children throughout schools in Wigan were given the chance to enter this competition in conjunction with Wigan & Leigh Health Authority. The design had to incorporate all 6 steps to creating a healthy lunchbox. Three entries were chosen from our school to be entered in the final.
One of the overall winners was from our School - Leah in Year 5 - her entry is now on the 6 steps to a healthy lunchbox leaflet that has been distributed to all schools. Please ask if you would like a copy.
Many thanks to the parents who attended our 'food sampling' evening with our school cook to encourage the uptake of our healthy school dinners.
