Morning Break Snacks

Healthy Snacks

All children in KS1 and Reception receive a free piece of fruit or vegetable every day as part of the
Government’s School Fruit and Vegetable scheme. All children who wish to have a break time snack are welcome to bring in something from home. Below are guidelines from the NHS and Change4life on healthy snacks.

Please also remember that we are a strictly nut free school.

We ask for your support to help us adhere to these guidelines at Oliver’s Battery School.
Healthier Break Time Snacks:

  • Chopped up raw vegetables– e.g. carrots, cucumber or peppers
  • Chopped up fruit/whole fruit – e.g. apple, satsuma, strawberries, halved grapes, melon slices
  • Breadsticks and wholemeal crackers
  • Malt loaf, tea cakes, fruit breads
  • Dried Cereal

Dried fruit is not recommended as a snack between meals as it is high in sugar and can be bad for teeth (but this is ok when eaten as part of a meal).
