Healthy Lunchbox

School meals are a great choice, but some pupils prefer to have a packed lunch prepared at home.

Packed Lunches

Pupils are welcome to have packed lunches, but we encourage parents and pupils to make healthy choices.

Storing packed lunches

Keep it cool – avoid food poisoning.

Lunch boxes should be kept cool – ideally use an insulated lunch box with ice packs or a frozen carton of juice to keep it cool.  If sandwiches are prepared the night before, always store them in a fridge overnight.  Don’t forget to keep the packed lunch cool at school!

If you do provide a packed lunch for your child then here are some tips with a range of quick, easy, healthier lunchbox ideas.
