Letter to Parents re: Healthy Snacks

Monday 23rd January 2023

Dear Parents and Carers,

Norman Pannell is a healthy school and in order to maintain this status it is important that we encourage our children to eat a healthy diet. Children have the opportunity to bring in a healthy snack for morning play. We have noticed that there has been some confusion about what is accepted as a healthy snack. As a result, we have decided to ask that only one portion of fruit or vegetables is provided as a snack for all children.
Parents in EYFS and KS1 may be aware that free fruit and vegetables are provided daily by school through the Government School Fruit and Vegetable Scheme and so you may choose not to send in an additional snack.
All other snacks including cereal bars, fruit winders and bread sticks etc. will be kept by the class teacher and returned to the child at the end of the day.

If your child does have a diagnosed medical condition that affects their eating, then please talk to their class teacher.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support in this matter and if there are any issues that you would like to discuss further please do not hesitate to contact school.
Yours sincerely,

Mrs McMaster  

Deputy Head teacher
