Minera Voluntary Aided Primary School

Healthy Eating

 

During this term, our School Council will be investigating how healthy are our daily snacks and looking for alternative healthy snacks.

Minera School is part of the Healthy Schools scheme and we want to promote healthy eating to our children. We would be grateful if you could play your part at home to enable Minera School to do this by providing your child with a healthy snack everyday.
