Packed Lunches and Morning Snacks

Packed Lunches and Morning Snacks  

Children bringing in foods for snack and lunch must meet with our Healthy School expectations. Please note we are a nut free school so please ensure your child’s lunch or snacks do not contain nuts.  The following guidance is from School Food Standards :

Packed lunches should include:

  • at least one portion of fruit and one portion of vegetables every day
  • meat, fish, eggs, or a non-dairy protein (e.g. lentils, kidney beans, chickpeas, humus) every day
  • a starchy food such as any type of bread, 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 drink of water

Packed lunches can occasionally include:

  • meat products such as sausage rolls, individual pies and sausages
  • cakes and biscuits, but be mindful of appropriate portion sizes

Packed lunches should not include:

  • confectionery such as chocolate bars, chocolate-coated cereal bars, processed fruit bars and sweets
  • sugary soft drinks, such as squash and fizzy drinks
  • nuts or any foods containing nuts


Morning snacks should be either a portion of fruit or vegetables or a cereal bar (without chocolate and/or nuts).
