Eating a healthy and balanced diet is an important part of maintaining good health, and can help you feel your best!
Here at South End Junior – we strive towards providing children with the best opportunities to do this.
The Huddle Snack Stop allows children to purchase fresh fruit and water a small price. The Snack Stop is open every morning before school and at break times allowing children to purchase a healthy snack.
Fruit is a good source of vitamins and minerals, and for their role in preventing vitamin C and vitamin A deficiencies. Fruit are important sources of many nutrients, including potassium, fibre and vitamin C.
Drinking water is the best way to quench your thirst. Even better, it doesn’t come with all the sugar and energy found in fruit juice drinks, soft drinks, sports drinks and flavoured mineral waters.
Drinking water instead of sweetened drinks also prevents dental problems, while the fluoride found in tap water can help strengthen teeth and bones.
