Health & Wellbeing
At Bliss we encourage healthy eating and a balanced diet and, due to it having a huge influence on a child’s development, we aim to ensure that it is addressed at school. In our food policy we say no to fizzy drinks and sweets (including Haribo) in our lunch hall and we would ask you not to send your child(ren) with these in their lunchbox. When it comes to items such as chocolate and other sugary foods, we do not say no but believe that these could be changed for a healthier alternative. Why not bring a fruit bar instead of chocolate bar? Why not try a piece of fruit instead of a biscuit?
We would love to see all varieties of healthy lunchboxes in our lunch hall! A healthy lunch will have many benefits to your child ranging from improved concentration in the afternoon to aiding of development physically. We have many posters and displays around the school highlighting healthy eating so please tell your children to have a look at those for extra knowledge. We also have an advice sheet on healthier lunch boxes on the school website under the tab ‘Health and Wellbeing’.
