Eating a healthy diet is very important for all of us. At school we are working with the School Nutrition Action Groups (SNAG) to find new and exciting ways of teaching the children all about healthy eating.
What is a School Nutrition Action Group (SNAG)?
A School Nutrition Action Group is a school-based alliance in which teaching staff, pupils
and caterers, supported, where appropriate, by health and education professionals and the
local community, work together to review and improve the school food service and adopt a
truly whole school approach to food education and culture.
A SNAG is an important part of the Food for Life Partnership Mark and goes beyond
lunches, to include the quality of snacking services, breakfast provision and vending. It will
also include food growing, cooking activity and links being made to local farms and food
producers so that pupils find out more about where food comes from.
We have been successful in achieving the Bronze and Silver Food for Life Award.
