Healthy food is important to us at Monega. Children are encouraged to eat a healthy diet and to exercise regularly.
Children in KS1 are offered free fruit or vegetables as a snack daily and School Council are about to begin a fruit snack shop in the KS2 playground on Friday playtimes.
We ask that parents who provide a packed lunch for their children ensure that packed lunches are healthy with no fizzy drinks, sweets and only a small amount of chocolate (optional).
At Monega all pupils are entitled to a school lunch free of charge as part of the Mayor's commitment. Parents who are entitled to 'Free School Meals' because they are in receipt of benefits or allowances can find the link to the application on the Newham website. Alternatively please come in to school so we can help you fill out the form. The school may receive extra funding to support your children if you do so.
Sometimes for our class parties we relax our healthy eating rules just a little bit!
