Healthy Food In Schools
A balanced healthy, nutritious diet is important for the development of a child’s physical state, as well as their intellectual abilities. Feeding the body with the proper nutrients helps fuel the mind to be more receptive to learning new skills. As a school we promote healthy eating habits that lead to lifelong health & well being. We work to ensure all aspects of food & nutrition in school promote the health & well being of pupils, staff & visitors to the school.
- To improve the health of pupils, staff & families by helping to influence their eating habits through increasing knowledge & awareness of food issues, including what constitutes healthy eating.
- To ensure pupils are well nourished at school, and that every pupil has access to safe, tasty, nutritious food, and safe, easily available water supply during the school day.
- To ensure the food provision in the school reflects the ethical, cultural & medical requirements of staff & pupils, e.g. religious, vegetarian & allergenic needs.
