Special diets and allergies:

 · The school has a nut free policy. Parents are asked to support this policy through NOT including nuts or nut products in packed lunches.

We operate the ‘Always, Sometimes, Never’ approach to Packed Lunches

Packed lunches should ‘Always’ include:

· at least one portion of fruit and one portion of vegetables every day. Grapes and cherry tomatoes should be halved lengthways for Early Years/Reception class children

· meat, fish, eggs, or a non-dairy protein (e.g. lentils, kidney beans, chickpeas, houmous, falafel) every day.

· a starchy food such as any type of bread (white or wholegrain rolls, pitta bread or wraps), pasta, rice, couscous, noodles, potatoes or another cereal every day.

· a dairy food such as milk, cheese, yoghurt, fromage frais or custard every day.

 · a bottle of water.

Packed lunches can ‘Sometimes’ include:

 · A meat product such as a sausage roll or an individual pie or corned meat.

· A cake or biscuit.

· A packet of crisps.

Packed lunches should ‘Never’ include:

· Any confectionery such as chocolate bars and sweets.

· Any extremely sugary soft drinks, such as a fizzy drink and energy drink (even if labelled as ‘sugarfree’, ‘no added sugar’ or ‘reduced sugar’ as these drinks can contribute to tooth decay and provide little nutritional value).

Waste and Disposal

The school will, within reason, send any uneaten packed lunch food items back home. The rationale for this is that parents can also monitor what their child has consumed during the day and then raise any concerns over their child’s food intake with the school.
