Healthy eating resources to support parents

11th Sep 2020

Dear parents/guardians,

As we have seen over the past few months the need to look after our health and wellbeing has never been so important.

One sure step towards a healthier lifestyle is healthy eating. St Colman's has a Healthy Break policy which has been in place for many years. We encourage children to eat a healthy snack at their mid morning break. Thank you for supporting us by providing your child with a healthy choice for break.

The Public Health Agency each year distribute booklets to P1 parents which give some great ideas for healthy eating in school. Unfortunately these resources will not be issued this year in hard copy. However, in an effort to continue to encourage a whole school approach to healthy eating in school, we are sending the PDF version of these resources for you to access and read. You will find these resources very useful, packed full of nutritious ideas for healthy packed lunches for your child.

There is a free one hour zoom workshop for parents this morning, 11th September, from 12 - 1pm. This workshop will be presented by a dietitian and will be repeated again on Thursday 17th September from 6-7pm. No sign up is needed. See details to attend.
