Minera Voluntary Aided Primary School

Healthy Snacks for Juniors

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;

• Fruit

• Vegetables

• Breadsticks

• Crackers

• 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.
