Woolley Wood School promotes healthy lunches!!
School dinners are probably healthier than most packed lunches. If you want to make a packed lunch it should be healthy and balanced and contain:
- Starchy Foods - these are bread, rice, potatoes and pasta
- Protein Foods - including meat, fish, eggs and beans
- A Dairy Item - this could be cheese or a yoghurt
- Vegetables or Salad - plus a portion of fruit
Low-fat snacks for children:
Children often like food they can eat with their fingers, so chop up raw vegetables such as carrots or peppers and give them hummus or cottage cheese to dip them into.
Breadsticks and wholemeal crackers are also great finger foods that can be spread with low-fat soft cheese or eaten with reduced fat cheddar.
Replace chocolate bars and cakes with fresh fruit. Vary the fruit each day and get them to try new things, such as kiwi or melon
A suggested lunchbox could be:
Tuna and sweetcorn wholemeal roll
Reduced-fat cheese triangle
Unsweetened apple juice

Magic Breakfast - Fuel for Learning
Woolley Wood School is proud to be in partnership with Magic Breakfast, providing healthy breakfasts to our pupils so that they are settled and ready to learn.
Magic Breakfast provides Woolley Wood School with nutritious breakfast food to ensure children start their school day in the best possible way. Breakfast gives children the energy needed for the busy school morning, enabling them to focus on their lessons.
Magic Breakfast is a charity with one simple purpose: to make sure no child starts the school day too hungry to learn and in return for our food and support, we ask that schools adhere to a few important principles. Our two key requests are that:
ALL children are able to access a healthy breakfast without stigma or barrier
Vulnerable children are regularly identified and actively targeted to attend
For more information on the Magic Breakfast provision see: www.magicbreakfast.com
Medical and Dietary
Can parents/carers please ensure that they provide the school with updated information on your child's medical and dietary requirements including any allergies he or she may have.
