Healthy Eating


A healthy, varied diet and a positive attitude to food play an essential part in the maintenance of young people’s health. A good diet is essential for optimum growth and development.

The benefits of healthy eating include:

· Improved concentration

· Preventing, dental decay, diabetes and obesity

 Longer term health benefits include:

  • Prevention of coronary heart disease, diabetes, some cancers and osteoporosis.


At St Philip’s we encourage children to develop a healthy diet. Our school dinners have a high nutritional value, and provide long term energy. We try to encourage a positive attitude to eating by allowing children to make their own selections from a selection of healthy foods.
