Wiltshire Healthy Schools Programme
Sherston school is actively engaged in the Wiltshire Healthy Schools programme and hold the Wiltshire Healthy Schools status. We are currently working towards becoming a Silver Level Wiltshire Healthy School. One of the areas that we are working on is school dinners, packed lunches and snacks. We are keen to find out the opinions of the pupils and the school council has devised and carried out a survey for pupils to establish healthy lunch and snack attitudes.
We are planning on creating a healthy snack recipe book and as part of this we are collecting recipes and posting them here for you to try! Please give/send any photos of your cooking and recipes to Mrs.Farahar. See below for the recipes.
Healthy Snacks and Lunches-September 2015
As a healthy school, we really want to promote healthy eating and ensure that children have enough energy to get them through to lunch time. In Key Stage One, children are provided with free fruit and vegetables at break time. Key Stage Two pupils are encouraged to bring a healthy snack which they can eat at break time. We ask parents to provide a snack that releases energy slowly, for example, oat cakes/rice cakes with cheese/ham, fruit, vegetable sticks, oat based flap jack.
If you are providing your child with a packed lunch, we would ask you to provide a healthy, balanced meal. Please do NOT send in crisps, sweets, chocolates, cereal bars or anything with a high sugar content for either snacks or lunches and please only send in water to drink.
As part of the Healthy Schools initiative lunches and snacks will be reviewed on a regular basis. Thank you for your support.
