Children on funded places have the option to bring a packed lunch to nursery instead of paying for meals. However we have very strict guidelines on what is allowed in.
A Healthy Packed Lunch
An example of a healthy lunchbox is pictured above. These should include foods from all food groups. We will still provide water and milk for children on funded places.
Foods that are not allowed in
It is our legal responsibility to encourage healthy eating for all children, so please do not add any of these processed foods to your child’s lunchbox as well will not give them. This includes chocolates, chocolate bars, chocolate biscuits, any crips, any foods containing Nuts, drinks high in sugar, fizzy drinks, sweets and cakes. Please do not bring takeaway foods such as burgers, chips and kebabs to nursery as we will send them home with you.
