Are our packed lunches getting healthier?

Berkeley Primary School are currently taking part in the Let's Get Healthy programme and one of the areas we have been trying hard to improve, is how healthy our packed lunches are.


In September we understood what children were bringing to school in their packed lunch and we were a little surprised! However, since children participated in the 'woah, slow, go' classroom session they have been able to identify some foods and drinks that fall into these categories and are now more aware of what a healthy packed lunch could include. 


It is extremely pleasing to see that there have been some great improvements since the start of the academic year, with the following changes being made:


6% increase in the amount of wholemeal bread compared to white bread

6% less crisps 

5% more water

8% more children bringing 1 or more pieces of fruit

9% more children bringing 1 or more pieces of vegetables


Well done everyone, keep up the hard work!
