Good nutrition is critical for children’s long and short term health, including physical and cognitive development. The children may choose from a menu of hot lunches from Glanmore Foods.
The children (with the help of our staff) will choose a daily meal from a menu. The menu will provide a choice of different meals per day plus a vegetarian or vegan option, as well as an option that caters for pupils’ religious and cultural dietary requirements.
Hot meals are delivered daily, at approx 12noon, to the school and distributed immediately to the boys and girls. Some children may be reluctant eaters at dinner time, please don’t worry about this, we will support and encourage them along the way and they will soon discover what they like and don’t like.
The Hot School Meals Programme is part of the overall School Meals Programme and is an important initiative in terms of a child’s wellbeing and nutrition.
Children may bring in their own healthy snack and drink. We encourage children to bring a reusable bottle to school filled with water. Why not try putting a slice of lemon, lime, oranges or some berries into their bottle each day! A much healthier alternative to sugary drinks!
Each child is offered milk in school each day.
In winter fresh soup is made daily and available to every child.
Sweets, crisps and similar treats are not permitted, we do however allow occasional treats as rewards or special occasions.
