What should lunches look like?

St. Brigid’s has a healthy lunch policy. Please do not give your child sweets, chocolate, fizzy drinks or crisps or popcorn for lunch.
St. Brigid’s GNS is a nut-free school as some of our students have serious nut allergies. Please ensure your daughter’s lunch has no nuts or nut products.
Lunch should provide one third of your child’s food requirements for the day. The most effective way to plan a healthy lunch is to include one food from each of the food groups – one piece of fruit, milk/yoghurt, two slices of bread and meat / poultry /cheese. This will aid your child to stay focused and aid their energy levels throughout the whole day.
Chewing gum is not allowed in school.
