St George's is dedicated to providing an environment that promotes healthy eating and enables pupils to make informed choices about the food they eat.
We aim to:
- Enable pupils to make healthy food choices through the provision of information and development of appropriate skills and attitudes.
- Provide healthy food choices throughout the school day.
The school understands that snacks can be an important part of the diet of children and can contribute positively towards a balanced diet. After consultation with the children through the school council, it has been decided that fruit is the only snack that can be eaten at break time. Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are provided with a piece of fruit every day as part of government-funded schemes. Children in Years 3,4, 5 & 6 are also provided a piece of fruit funded the school's pupil premium budget.
All children are encouraged to bring a water bottle to school throughout the year, which they can keep on their desks.
School dinners are catered by our in-house Chef Mr Jolly, who provides menus that meet the current standards for school lunches. At the beginning of each day, children having school dinners choose from one of three options on the daily menu. There are always two hot meal options, one of which is suitable for vegetarians, and either a baguette or a jacket potato, with two options for a filling. Fruit is always offered for pudding along with a sweet alternative.
