Dear Parent / Carer
Lunch is an important meal for children to provide energy and nutrients to keep them going throughout the afternoon.
To grow and stay healthy, children need to eat a nutritionally well-balanced diet. Good nutrition in childhood can help to prevent a variety of health problems, both in the short term and later in life. There is increasing concern that many children are consuming too much fat, sugar and salt. Packed lunches can contribute to almost a third of a child’s weekly food intake and therefore needs to be balanced and nutritious. Our catering company, Pabulum offers a well-balanced school lunch. If your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 is entitled to a free school meal.
