Healthy Eating

Healthy Eating at the Willows


The Willows School Academy Trust is dedicated to providing an environment that promotes healthy eating and enables pupils to make informed choices about the food they eat.

We aim to:

  • Enable pupils to make healthy food choices through the provision of information and development of appropriate skills and attitudes.
  • Provide healthy food choices throughout the school day.

The school understands that snacks can be an important part of the diet of children and can contribute positively towards a balanced diet. 

Packed Lunches should be healthy, nutritious and fun!

If your child is having a packed lunch, have a look at our Guidelines for Healthy Eating. 

Guidelines for Healthy Eating - Packed Lunches 

  • Brown bread is encouraged as an alternative to white bread for sandwiches.
  • Sweets, chocolate and fizzy drinks should not be part of a packed lunch (fizzy drinks are not allowed in school).

You can have fun together by getting your child to help make their packed lunch.

  • You could cut sandwiches into shapes with biscuit cutters to make their sandwiches fun! These can be seasonal things, e.g Christmas trees at Christmas, Hearts on Valentine's day, the options are endless. If you come up with an idea for a sandwich shape, take a photo of it and we can load it onto this page!
