At St Mary's we recognise the importance of a healthy lifestyle and diet and understand that establishing a balanced diet in childhood helps to promote healthy eating habits for life.
We encourage all children to bring in a healthy snack for morning break. Below is a list of healthy snack suggestions to give an idea of what to send in with your child.
Fruit and vegetables
Cheese and crackers
These are only suggestions. Please use your judgement when organising a healthy snack for your child. All children in EYFS and Key Stage One have a fresh fruit choice available at break times.
Children should not be bringing in chocolate bars, sweets or crisps.
We really appreciate the support of all our parents and cares with this.
Nut Free School
Although we recognise that this cannot be guaranteed, St Mary's aims to be a Nut-Free school. This is to reduce the risk to those children and adults who may suffer an anaphylactic reaction if exposed to nuts to which they are sensitive.
