Healthy Eating


Super Trouper Safari

Early in March the Active School Committee(2nd class) went on a Super Trooper Safari to Supervalu in Loughrea. There we met a dietitian and got to taste food from the Bakery, Meat, Dairy and Fruit and Vegetables sections.

 

SCOIL CHROI NAOFA HEALTHY EATING POLICY

Introductory Statement: This policy has been revised in collaboration with Mrs. Hennessy and her Healthy School Committee, Staff, Parents Council & Board of Management. A special thank you to Ruth Kilcawley (parent and Consultant Dietician) who was very generous with her time and expertise. This policy is a working document reviewed annually.

Rationale:

Food and drink are an essential part of our daily lives.  They play a fundamental role in the development of the human being.  Making the right choices to support our nutrition requirements satisfies our physiological needs, and also contributes to our mental and emotional development.  What we eat and drink is directly related to our state of health.

Aim:

The aim of this Healthy Eating Policy is to help our school community, children, staff and parents develop positive and responsible attitudes to food and nutrition and to appreciate the benefits that healthy food and drink habits make to overall health and wellbeing.
