Our Healty Eating Guidelines So that we could decide what our healty eating guidelines should contain we formed a healty eating committee. This committee consisted of teachers, parents, members of the board of management and children in our school. The committee decided that the best way to find out what the needs of our school were was to do a lunch survey.
When the survey was completed the committee sat down to write some draft guidelines for a healthy eating policy. The draft policy was then sent home with every child and a suggestion box was placed in the school reception so that pupils and parents could have their say.
Following this the committee decided to have a healty eating week in October to launch the school's new healty eating guidelines. During this week the guidelines were on display in the school reception area and there was a cookery demonstration by Bord Bia for parents in our school hall. It was full of great recepies and ideas for healthy lunches. Our healthy eating guidelines are now in place and will be reviewed each year.
