Healthier Lunchboxes

Are an important part of your healthy schools work and can contribute to wider work to help reduce childhood obesity. Packed lunches are often an area of confusion for parents and teachers alike. A good starting point for developing your own school's packed lunch policy is this sample one. It should be stress that this is only a starting point.


A number of schools worked on this challenging area to achieve Healthy Schools Plus recognition.  If you would like to develop your healthy schools work please get in touch if you would like some support.


Health Packed Lunch Leaflet

You can download a copy of our new Health Packed Lunch Leaflet.


The leaflet was designed over the summer break of 2010 and is aimed at being visual and simple. It is a5 or a6 size, so that families can put it on the fridge at home!


*Please note that due to recent budget constraints we will no longer be able to print leaflets for free*.
