At Northwold we have adopted healthy school principles

At Northwold we have adopted healthy school principals.

A high proportion of our community make food choices based on religion. We never serve pork at Northwold and all school meals are halal. Vegetarian options are also always available.

When pupils bring food in a packed lunch, we ensure the items match up to our healthy principals and only include the following:

We do not allow children to be in possession of sweets, crisps or chocolate as they are expensive and not good for them.

We also encourage portion control and recommend that packed lunches only include a sandwich, a portion of vegetables, one treat like a piece of fruit or a yoghurt and a small bottle of water. These rules apply to all children including those on school trips.
