Nutrition in young children is extremely important. Red Roots, therefore, insists on healthy food being brought to school daily, as we don't provide school lunches.

Every child will need to bring a fruit as their snack, and this will be cut up and shared with their classmates in the mornings. If this fruit isn’t enough for your growing child, you could provide an additional healthy snack too.

On birthdays, you are encouraged to send a healthy treat for your child to share with their peers. Ideas of healthy treats to provide include popcorn, bran muffins, biltong or granola bars.

If your child has a food allergy, this needs to be communicated urgently to the teaching staff before your child starts the year with us.
