Making Good Choices: Healthy Lifestyles

We have been working really hard to improve the food we are eating in school and as part of this we have a healthy packed lunch policy.  

We also run a cooking club after school. This half term it will be year 3's turn and we will add links to the recipes we make here so you can have a go at home.

We have healthy snacks in school at breaktimes from Monday to Thursday (fruit or vegetables only). As well as this children can buy toast and milk. On Fridays the children can bring in a small snack (a packet of crisps or small chocolate bar).

Change for Life have launched a new app called Sugar Smart. It enables you to scan barcodes on food packaging at home and at the shops and shows you the number of sugar cubes in food or drink. You can get more information and download the app by clicking on the link below.
