Healthy Lunch Draft Policy
St Canice’s Co-Ed Primary School
Granges Road, Kilkenny.
Healthy Lunch Policy
Much of the recent focus on children’s health has been in the areas of nutrition, exercise and rising levels of obesity. It is therefore only right that the school promotes a healthy eating policy that will enable children to participate fully in the school day. By raising nutrition awareness amongst our children we are providing them with a basis to make informed choices about their health into the future.
The following policy document, prepared by teachers and children, has been shared with parents and ratified by the Boards of Management.
The aim of our Healthy Lunch Policy is to promote a culture of healthy eating within the school community.
This aim will be achieved through the co-operation of all interested parties....
