Help Your Children to Have a Balanced Diet
There are many ways that we can help our kids to develop healthy eating habits. Healthy eating isn’t complicated, and for most children (and adults!) it boils down to eating less junk food and more fruit, vegetables and wholegrain foods. We should also drink water rather than sweetened drinks. Having a good diet helps prevent a range of serious illnesses now and in later life.
Lindfield Primary Academy has introduced the Captain's Table in the lunch hall. Every Friday one child will be selected from each class to join Marcus Still or Vanessa Smith at the Captain's table. This is an opportunity to promote healthy eating, good table manners and good behaviour in the lunch hall. It is also an opportunity for the children to ask Mr Still and Mrs Smith anything they like and to meet and talk to children from different year groups. The Captain's table is decorated with a tablecloth to make it a special occasion. The children love it - Lily Frewing from Cherry class said it was good because she got to talk to Mr Still about her work!
