Snacks, milk and allergies

Breaktime Snacks

Fruit and/or vegetables are provided every day for the children in Key Stage 1.  However, some children are still hungry and we do understand that they may need an additional ‘something’ to eat.

We therefore have an agreed list of acceptable foods for break time snacks. We have also included a list of foods that we do not allow in school. This was on request from parents and I hope that it is useful to you.

Healthy Breaktime Snacks

Fruit

Dried fruit

Yogurt coated dried fruit

Fruit puree pouches

Raw vegetables

Breadstick

Rice cakes

Crackers

Healthy cereal bar (chocolate free)

Snack bars with fruit filling e.g. Go ahead bars

Breaktime Snacks NOT ALLOWED 

Crisps of any kind (including Pringles)

Biscuits (savoury e.g. Cheddars as well as sweet)

Chocolate Bars of any kind e.g. Kit –Kat

Sweets of any kind

Fruit winders

Nuts of any kind

Nut Allergies

We do have some Anaphylactic Children in school.  

This means that these children are highly allergic to nuts of any kind. Some children have a severe reaction from even touching nuts.  We therefore do not allow nuts of any kind into school (even peanut butter sandwiches).

Healthy Eating and birthday treats

As part of striving to be a healthy school you are very welcome to send in cakes for birthday celebrations (nut free) but please do not send in sweets to be given out to the children during the day
