Healthy packed lunches– please can I ask parents to check the amount of sugar contained in children’s packed lunch. Most children’s yoghurts, especially the tube yoghurts have high sugar content. Also fruit winders are not fresh fruit and contain sugar and can be defined sweets. Many children’s packed lunches cannot be classed as healthy due to amount of sugar being consumed. Sugar contained in school dinners is controlled for e.g. the dessert option is a yoghurt or a cake/biscuit item, not both.
