School Council have been looking at healthy eating here at Brockhampton Primary School and noting down what things we do well as well as what things we could improve.
School Care observing the snacks children have during break time and if they are healthy. Whilst EYFS and KS1 classes have fruit free to all children, KS2 bring their own snacks and often more than one. School council believe that one healthy snack is enough and the chocolate and crisps should not be allowed for a break time snack.
Each class representatives have been asking their class to write down one snack they have during break time and during our next meeting we will be looking at the range of healthy snacks/unhealthy snacks. School Council will be giving feedback through an assembly on healthy eating.
Members of School Council are creating posters to encourage children to bring and pick healthier options depending whether they are on dinners or packed lunches. These will be displayed in the dining hall on a display board for the children to see.
School lunches and packed lunches
School Council have been asking children what they think about the hot school lunches provided by Black Pepper. They discussed and agreed that main meals are fairly healthy although, puddings are often unhealthy. School council asked each class what healthy selections they would like to see as a choice. From the feedback children would like a variety of fresh fruit, fruit kebabs and more fruit salad during the week, fruit crumble and fruit jelly was also a suggestion given.
Packed lunches is another area School Council will be focusing on after half term.
