Good for Kids - Good for Life

The Good for Kids ~ Good for Life program encourages children to eat healthily and engage in regular physical activity.

It aims to combat childhood obesity and put in place habits, which will encourage all children to maintain a healthy lifestyle that they can carry into adulthood.

What is involved?

Healthy Lunch Boxes

Parents are asked to ensure that their children bring healthy foods that are low in saturated fats, salt and sugar for recess and lunch each day.

Include: sandwiches (rolls, wraps, and low fat crisp breads), vegetables, fruit and water. If packing tinned food like baked beans or tuna please transfer the food to a small plastic container at home as ring pull cans are a safety hazard at school.

Children are not permitted to share their lunches with others at school.

Crunch and Sip

All classes have a time during the day (usually in the morning session) when the children can have a short Crunch and Sip break during class time.

Children need to bring a water bottle labelled clearly with their name to school each day so that they can sip on it when needed.

Food allergies

Some children have food allergies and intolerances which may lead to an anaphylactic reaction. Parents are asked to ensure that their child's class teacher is aware of any special needs, at the beginning of each year.

We encourage families to not send nuts and products containing nuts to school.
