Healthy Eating Monday


Probus Primary School

We have a 'Healthy Eating Monday' every other week of term. This way we can best police what the contents of a packed lunch should look like. We always promote a healthy, balanced meal served by school canteen, but it is the contents of packed lunch boxes that cause concern. We send out literature to educate and reinforce our policies to parents/carers, who are getting on board with this. We also use PE as our flagship to drive home the benefits of a balanced healthy meal and a balanced, healthy lifestyle. We use our sticker chart from Aldi as a main focus of what elite athletes may consume... and why! We have a healthy eating display board which children can add to if they wish with ideas and recipes. The Aldi's Kit for Schools promotion of this subject with the Team GB athletes has been of great help!
