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.

Captain's Table

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 our senior leadership team 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 senior teachers 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.
