The whole school enjoyed a wonderful morning at the Cooking4Life workshop, learning about nutrition and the importance of eating a healthy lunch.
This term we will be introducing a reward system to encourage children to eat a healthy lunch, whether this is a school lunch or a packed lunch – more details will follow regarding this.
In addition to showing us how to cook and prepare vegetables, the chef demonstrated a healthy and an unhealthy packed lunch.
Here is an example of items to include in a healthy packed lunch.
These are items which should not be included in a packed lunch as they are unhealthy.
