Children who stay for lunch can store their lunch boxes in the cupboard.
As our pre-school is part of the Healthy Early Years (HEY) programme and Nippers Nutrition we ask that parents provide a healthy lunch for their children. Our Food and Drink Policy states that we ‘encourage parents to provide healthy sandwich fillings, fruit and a milk-based desert such as yoghurt, we discourage sweet drinks and can provide children with water or milk. We discourage packed lunch contents that consist largely of crisps, processed foods, and sweet products such as cakes, biscuits and sweets. We reserve the right to return this food as a last resort.
The research that we have undertaken as part of the HEY programme has highlighted the consequences of unhealthy eating such as the risk of being overweight, tooth damage, high blood pressure, risk of heart disease/stroke and deficiencies in essential nutrients such as iron, zinc and vitamin A which can reduce immunity and impair development.
