Guidelines for a healthy lunchbox

  • A healthy lunchbox includes a sandwich or roll with cheese, ham or a filling of choice.
  • Some of the healthy snacks that we encourage include popcorn, fruit (banana, orange, apple, raisins etc.) flapjacks, yoghurt, crackers & liga.Crisps and all types of corn snacks are not permitted any day.
  • Fizzy drinks are NOT permitted.
  • Foods which have wrappers should be kept to a minimum, wrappers and any food not eaten must be put back in the lunch box and taken home. Cling film, tinfoil and plastic bags cannot be recycled so we will use a lunchbox instead.
  • Friday is our treat day. On this day we can include one piece of food from the top shelf of the food pyramid. If giving a bar - a fun size bar is recommended.
  • All classes will receive some lessons on healthy eating. A Healthy Eating Awareness Week will be held. Our school's Healthy Eating guidelines will be displayed throughout the school.


Please let us know if you would like any changes made to these guidelines.
