Healthy Eating

We are currently looking at our Healthy Eating Policy in school here. This is an area that we can all find difficult to navigate. Below are some links to useful information on how to plan for and encourage healthy eating. While it can take effort in the short term there are genuine long-term benefits for everyone.

We are lucky in OLOL NS that we can avail of free school lunches. These are designed to be healthy and to meet clear nutritional guidelines. The lunches are supplied by Fresh Today and produced locally in Enniscorthy.

One area which we are keen to highlight is the amount of sugar that is in common drinks. As a starting point milk and water are the ideal drinks for children. Have a look at the picture below to see how much sugar is in some common drinks! We are guessing the coffee isn't a straight, black Americano!
