In Moneystown National School we promote healthy eating as part of our Wellbeing Policy. Children are required to have lunches that are nutritionally balanced, free from sugar filled treats. Establishing healthy eating habits in childhood is important. Lunches are an important meal for your child and it is a good idea to put some thought into them.
Making sure there is plenty of colour in your child’s lunchbox is important. Provide plenty of water for your child to drink and also make sure that the lunch is easy for your child to eat.
There are some excellent tips on how to prepare a healthy and attractive lunch for your child on the ‘safefood’ website.
