A Healthy lunchbox

The following guidelines are set out by the NHS website Change4Life and they recommend that a child’s lunch should include only the following: –

  • A portion of starchy food, eg. wholegrain bap/bread, sesame seed pitta bread, plain crackers, couscous, noodles, or pasta.
  • Fresh fruit, vegetables and salad, eg. apple/orange/banana, cherry tomatoes, carrot sticks, mini fruit chunks, etc.
  • A portion of milk, dairy food or alternative, eg. cheese, plain/fruit yoghurt, tofu, custard etc.
  • Small portion of lean meat, fish or alternative, eg. two slices of ham, chicken, beef, Quorn, cheese, tuna, lentils, chickpeas, falafel, egg or hummus, etc.
  • A drink – plain water or milk (not flavoured) or a small 150ml fruit juice (not fizzy or diluted squash)

Lunchbox swaps

  • Try bags of grapes, melon chunks and strawberries to provide the sweetness without the added sugar.
  • Choose teacakes, fruit loaf, scones or plain biscuits as an alternative to cakes and chocolate.
  • Carrot and celery sticks with a natural low fat yoghurt or hummus dip are tasty side orders.


We do have children in school who have severe allergies to nuts/peanuts. It is very important that children do not bring nuts/peanuts, or products that contain these, to school so that we can provide these children with a safe school environment. Any exposure to nuts/peanuts may cause a life-threatening allergic reaction that requires emergency medical treatment. Some children can be so sensitive that even traces on breath or hands can cause a reaction, which is why we ask that no nut products come into school even if it does not directly affect the children your child tends to sit with
