Thank you for your patience and encouragement as we have undergone the task of re-establishing the School Tuck Shop. We are very excited to have it ready to go!! We’d just like to explain a little about the philosophy behind it.
Research has shown that children’s concentration and learning is better when they are consuming healthy food as opposed to food that is high in sugar and fat.
Because schools teach children about making healthy food choices it makes sense to back this up by providing healthy food in the Tuck Shop.
We understand that children need to learn to make healthy choices. However we believe a healthy Tuck Shop rather than one that supplies all food types is a better option for a primary school and this allows parents to guide children’s choices at home. This was strongly supported by the results in the school-wide survey issued last term.
In achieving this goal we have removed ‘junk food’, and foods high in sugar or fat, that have little nutritional value. The current menu is just a starting point. It is our intention to increase the food options available depending on the needs and preferences of the children and we welcome your suggestions. We will be asking for feedback later in the term once the Tuck Shop has been operating for a while, but feel free to email us in the meantime if you have any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please see the following links on how to order your child’s lunch, link to the full menu and link to the ingredients list.
