Family Zone

Our school lunch menus are designed to ensure children have nutritious food from the major food groups, however we know that some children prefer to bring in their own lunch.  We have noticed that some of our children’s lunchboxes from home are filled with highly processed, sugary items with little nutritional value.  We understand that children can be fussy eaters and it is difficult to think of healthy options for their lunches. The NHS Change4Life has lots of great ideas for children’s lunchboxes as well as some useful information on the diets children need to remain fit and healthy.
