Holy Family has a Healthy Eating Policy. Free fruit is provided for P1 and P2. The older children also bring a piece of fruit to be eaten at break time. We have a healthy lunch box rule. Children are encourage to take a filled water bottle into class at the start of the day. Research indicates that drinking water is not only healthy, but improves concentration. There is a Tuck Shop available at KS2 break time, selling a variety of fresh fruit and water.
In partnership with Tesco Antrim Road, our children have learned all about healthy eating and about where our food comes from. Every year group has visited Tesco a number of times over the past few years and they have thoroughly enjoyed their activities with our very own Tesco expert, Gail.
