At Abbey Fields we have primarily sessional children. Some stay for lunch club and bring along a packed lunch and for those who are with us for a longer/full day we prefer to offer them an option of a hot meal later in the day. This means they can enjoy a packed lunch at lunchtime with their friends. However we do follow the guidelines within our Healthy eating policy and follow current national standards and have a policy that supports these.
To make sure that children who bring a lunch from home to eat in Nursery have food that is just as healthy and nutritious as food served at schools that is regulated by national standards.
To give clear guidance to parents, carers, children and staff on providing a healthy packed lunch and snack. We believe that a healthy packed lunch can contribute to the health of children and needs to be consistent with the nutritional standards provided by Early Years Nutritional Guidelines.
The policy applies to all packed lunches and snack consumed within Nursery.
