Healthy Choices in Schools
The Heart of Derbyshire campaign was launched in September 2015 to help people make healthy choices when eating out. This scheme was extended into schools whose meals are produced by county catering team. Schools are being offered reduced fat, salt and sugar dishes and more fruit, vegetables and wholegrain choices.
Is is important for everyone to eat healthily. Poor diet can contribute to obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, coronory heart disease, strokes and cancer.
The Derbyshire Catering Service has achieved the Heart of Derbyshire Gold award, which is an indication of their commitment to providing healthy options and catering for specific requirments. This should reassure parents and carers that their children can make healthy choices.

We have a healthy eating break time snack policy. Children may bring in snacks such as fresh fruit and vegetables. If children take a snack from their lunch box for morning break, we ask them to select a healthy choice.
