Fruit and Water
As part of the governments National Fruit Scheme, the children in Reception, Years 1 and 2 are provided with a piece of fruit for each afternoon. One of the aims is for children to be able to eat a whole piece of fruit, without it being peeled or cut up for them.
In addition to this all Children in Reception – Year 6 are able to bring in a piece of fruit or vegetable to eat at breaktime. The children will have access to water fountains in the outside area. However, many children like to bring in a bottle of water to school each day to drink when they need it. Please ensure items are labelled clearly with your child’s name.
We provide milk for Reception children. It is an important part of a child’s diet. Under the latest government food-based and nutrient -based information milk provides number of health benefits an social opportunities to ensure children get the most out of the school day.
