At Rakaia School we actively encourage eating frequently and making the right healthy choices. We supply 3 dedicated meal times to eat from Brain Break, Morning Break to Lunch time, however with these growing minds and bodies in our kura there may also be times when your child just needs a top up in between which our teachers will monitor.
We are a positive promoter of healthy lunches and discourage sweets, chocolates, lollies and food that is high in sugar content. However, we are also parents and know how busy it can be at home so click here for some easy inspirational ideas to help with these Lunch Box Ideas
Drinks – with our bodies being made up of 60% water it is important to keep hydrated and we have found that water is the best or our tamariki. Please supply a named drink bottle that you child can bring into class and keep hydrated throughout lessons as well as all the outdoor recreational activities that happen throughout the day. Don’t worry if your child forgot their bottle, we have water foundations located throughout the school that will give your child access to the best drinking water in New Zealand.
Heat up food for term 2 and 3 – with the winter months upon us, we supply the option of re-heating food. There will be a dedicated day for your syndicate, food must be pre cooked, defrosted, wrapped and labelled. No pot noodles or liquid food like soups.
