Operation Healthy Lunchboxes!
As you are aware, healthy eating habits start early in childhood and can last a lifetime. Lunchtime provides one third of a child’s daily nutrition requirements so where better to start!
In conjunction with our school’s healthy eating policy, we will be taking part in ‘Operation Healthy Lunchbox’ which has been launched through the RTÉ One show ‘Operation Transformation’. They want to see Irish children’s lunchboxes transform over the next few weeks and are asking schools to support their healthy lunch box initiative. To help with this mission, safefood have created a Healthy lunchbox leaflet with everything you need to know.
While classes get munching on those healthy lunches, teachers will be taking photos of the proud owners holding up their healthy lunchboxes and uploading the best lunchbox photos to our website. There will also be a prize for the healthiest lunchbox in each classroom at the end of the month!
Looking forward to seeing all the healthy lunchboxes !
