Etz Chaim Jewish Primary School actively supports healthy eating and drinking throughout the school day, ensuring that all aspects of food and nutrition in school promotes health and well-being of pupils, staff and visitors to our school. All our school meals are provided by FusionCater who have a healthy food policy as part of their offer. There is a choice of fresh fruit and vegetables each day and they provide a vegetarian and non-vegetarian option, both of which pay regard to nutritional balance and healthy options. The children are supported in their selections by the lunchtime supervisors who encourage the children to take a balanced meal.
All children receive a free school meal as part of the Universal Free School Meals government initiative and the Mayor Of London's lunch offer.
Children are encouraged to drink water freely throughout the day. Every classroom has access to fresh drinking water.
Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are provided with fresh fruit each day. Children in Year 3 and up are asked to bring in a fresh fruit or vegetable snack each day.
