In Caherline National School we have a 'Healthy Lunchbox Policy'
Lunch is an important meal for school going children. It should provide one third of their recommended daily allowance of nutrients without being high in fat, sugar or salt. It should also provide dietary fibre. We ask you to encourage a healthy lunch right from the start. Also, please only give your child something you feel they can manage to eat. A healthy packed lunch should contain bread or an alternative, a savoury filling which provides protein, a suitable drink and some fruit and/or vegetables. Sweets, biscuits or bars are allowed on a Friday.
