Here at Montpelier we follow the Healthy Schools guidance on healthy eating. Although we feel that many of our pupils at Montpelier have healthy packed lunch, we thought it would be helpful to remind parents of the following.

Occasionally the following may be included:
It is vital that pupils do not have any snacks containing nuts as this poses a serious health issue to pupils and staff who have nut allergies. For information about nut allergies and the consequences of being exposed, please see this link
The only food items which are permitted as snacks are fruit or vegetables, either fresh or dried. Please ensure break time snacks and any after school snacks meet this guidance.
