Snack time information and ideas

At BPS we recognise the importance of a healthy lifestyle and diet and understand that establishing a balanced diet in childhood helps to promote healthy eating habits for life.

We encourage all children to bring in a healthy snack for morning break.

Below is a list of healthy snack suggestions to give an idea of what to send in with your child.

  • Fruit and vegetables
  • Granola bars
  • Rice cakes
  • Malt loaf
  • Cheese and crackers
  • Yogurt
  • Unsalted popcorn

All children have access to a fresh fruit choice  at break times.

Children should not be bringing in chocolate bars, sweets or crisps.

Scan, Swipe and Swap your way to better health!

The free NHS Food Scanner app is a handy tool for families that helps them to swap unhealthy foods that are high in saturated fat, sugar and salt, to healthier choices.

Download the Food Scanner app on the Apple app store or Google Play store.

We really appreciate the support of all our parents and carers with this

Emotional health and mental wellbeing affect all aspects of our lives and health choices.


Mental well-being is about feeling good and functioning well, as individuals and as communities. It is also about our ability to cope with life’s challenges and making the most of life’s opportunities.
