In accordance with Bunyip Primary School canteen policy,  we provide healthy options and balanced foods for our students. We provide additive and preservative free options and try to avoid artificial colours and flavours to the best of our ability. We provide an extensive selection of 'over the counter' options available at recess and lunch. Hot food is baked, not fried and only available at lunch time.

 

Lunch orders

  • Write your lunch order, students name and room number (not grade) on paper bag and enclose payment
  • Do not seal paper bag with staples or sticky tape
  • Students must place lunch orders into classroom box by 9.15am
  • If insufficient funds are supplied, some items may be replaced by items of lesser value
  • Lunch specials will be advertised on the school app (SZAPP)

Thank you

We are lucky enough to have local businesses who donate fruit to our school on a Monday that the children are welcome to help themselves to throughout the week. Thank you to IGA Bunyip and Sherwood Park Orchard for their generous weekly donations.

 

Healthy eating

Developing healthy eating habits is an important lesson that we aim to promote at Bunyip Primary School. It is vital that children understand the importance of nutrition in developing physical and mental fitness as well as providing the energy they need to participate actively in life. Food and drink are vital for children to grow and develop, but the types of food that children consume, is important.

 

We encourage students to think about the types of food and drinks they eat in a typical day. Children are often keen to eat healthy foods when they understand that their body needs these foods to grow and develop.

 

All classes have introduced brain food snacks to promote healthy eating, as well as giving students an opportunity to keep energy levels up. At various times during the day, students may take a brain food break that is healthy and will provide an energy boost. Students enjoy the chance to nibble away while working, but are also learning the benefits of healthy eating habits

 

Brain food includes:

  • fresh fruit
  • fresh vegetables (e.g.: carrot sticks and hummus dip)

Water

All students are encouraged to keep up their intake of water with individual water bottles permitted in classrooms. Children need to drink plenty of water, even in cooler weather, to keep their bodies functioning well.
