Eating healthy

BMPS is a Health Promoting School and recognises the importance of eating healthy food. When your child starts at BMPS, we ask that you sign a healthy food policy document. The purpose is to encourage the school community to provide healthy food options for the children at school by prohibiting certain foods and drinks at school.

Guidelines

  • All families will be notified about food and drink items that are not allowed at school.
  • The school will incorporate Healthy Eating programmes as part of the school's Health Education and Health Promoting Schools programme.
  • The following food and drink items are not permitted at BMPS on normal school days:
      • Large bags of chips and similar products.
      • Any form of fizzy drinks, cans or bottles of juice or similar (milk and water only).
      • Any energy or high caffeine drinks.
      • Pies that do not have the Healthy tick.
      • Fast foods such as McDonalds, Burger King, KFC etc.
      • Large cookies or packets of biscuits.
      • Chocolate bars or sweets except when provided by the school on special occasions.


If the items above are brought to school they will be confiscated and not returned. A basic alternative lunch will be provided for the child.

Please note: The tuck-shop is not currently operating

The school tuck-shop is a service that is provided at the school. The school makes a concerted effort to ensure that the food offered in the tuck-shop is the healthiest we can provide. Most items on the menu have the Heart Foundation tick or seal of approval.

The tuck-shop is open from 8:00 - 8:55am for children to order their lunches.

Parents are able to order lunches until 9:30am.

Please see the current tuck-shop menu below.
