Healthy Eating

Lunch Time


Lunch time will be between 11:30 – 12:30.


At the  start of reception we encourage all children to try school dinners, especially as they are free. Teaching staff accompany the children to dinner for the first few weeks and will be able to tell you what your child has eaten. If staff have any concerns about how much your child is eating they will ask you to highlight foods your child usually eats on the school menu to help staff support your child to select foods they like. However, if your child still finds it hard to choose something to eat we will ask you to provide a packed lunch. 


A typical balanced lunch might include:

-A sandwich
-A piece of fruit
-A yoghurt
-A small treat (not including chocolate or sweets)
-A drinks bottle with water
