The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child states in Article 24
“Every child has the right to the best possible health. Governments must provide good quality health care, clean water, nutritious food and a clean environment so that children can stay healthy. Richer countries must help poorer countries achieve this.”
At Bowesfield school we offer a breakfast club from 8.15 every morning, where children can buy, for 30p, a healthy breakfast of cereal and toast or a bagel with a drink, and then enjoy activities with their friends until school starts.
Every break time KS1 and EYFS pupils are offered a healthy snack of fruit.
Hot lunches are provided and Rachel, our cook encourages children to try new things and to eat healthily.
