Healthy Snacks Please

Thank you for your feedback at Parents' Evening about healthy snacks at break time (10.40-11am). The feedback was extremely useful and has helped us to set some guidelines that we hope everyone will be happy to support.

The majority of parents that responded to the survey would prefer the school to choose the break-time snacks that would be appropriate. We have therefore taken into account the type of snack that parents thought would be suitable as a healthier option and would like to suggest the following:

Fruit or vegetables

Cereal bars


There will of course be many other examples of healthy snacks not listed here that you may provide your child with and so this should serve as a general guide. The teachers will use their discretion at break-time but will certainly be asking pupils to save crisps, chocolate bars, biscuits and cakes etc for lunchtime!

We hope this provides some clarification but please do not hesitate to get in touch should you wish to discuss this further.
