Free School Meals
Many families are entitled to free school meals and this can be arranged confidentially either through the school office or directly with Kent County Council. To find out if you are eligible for this benefit you can view the KCC website or contact the area office on 01474 564701 (9am - 4pm).
Children should be encouraged to eat a healthy balanced meal & packed lunches should be no exception. Carbonated drinks, chocolate bars and sweets are not permitted in a school packed lunch. Many manufacturers provide a range of healthy options designed for childrens lunches, however these can sometimes prove expensive. The British Nutrition Foundation has put together some packed lunch ideas on their website. Use the following link to view their recommendations.
Fresh Fruit for Every Child
Every child is offered at least one piece of fruit during morning play. This is an ideal opportunity for the children to try new fruit as the selection is varied throughout the seasons.
