Guidance on Packed Lunches
A number of parents have been asking for ideas and guidance about what a packed lunch should/not contain.
As a school we recommend that a packed lunch should contain:

- A piece of fruit
- A dairy item such as cheese or a yoghurt
- Treats, such as cakes, biscuits, chocolate or crisps should be limited to once a week

Therefore, we would like to encourage parents to share their ideas – we will post your suggestions (or pictures) on our school social media (Facebook and Twitter).
To get the ball rolling, there are some fantastic ideas on the BBC Good Food website https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/howto/guide/school-packed-lunch-inspiration and a guide from the Children’s Food Trust here.
