As part of our Healthy Schools initiative and in order to promote a healthy lifestyle we encourage all children to bring a healthy snack to school to enjoy during morning break. Recently we have seen an increase in the amount of unhealthy snacks being consumed by the children e.g. chocolate, crisps etc. I understand that the key to a healthy lifestyle is a balanced diet with plenty of exercise, and I also agree that children should be given a ‘treat’ every so often (I certainly enjoy my treats!!)
However, at Minera we feel strongly about children having a healthy snack such as;
• Scotch pancake
• Oat cakes
• Rice cakes
Please make every effort to ensure your child has a healthy snack in school.
Thank you for your continued support.
