We consider lunch times to be a valuable part of a child’s day. Children are supported by their room team, within the security of their familiar environments.
Children bring a packed lunch from home as we are currently unable to provide a hot lunch.
As part of our approach to support children’s independence and problem solving skills, children are encouraged to take responsibility for their lunch box and drink bottle. Please help us to help them by clearly naming their belongings.
We also encourage children to learn to manage boxes and packets by themselves at lunch time. We help by teaching the skills they need to open a variety of containers etc. WE love how proud they are when they have succeeded. Our “Back to Basics” self-help skills curriculum sets out the small steps we want them to learn to help them achieve these key life skills.
To promote healthy eating we have attached some packed lunch ideas to help you plan.
