Packed Lunches Training


This event will provide you with all the skills, tools and confidence to really make a difference to packed lunches at your school.

Healthy packed lunches promote equality and inclusion for all, aiming to ensure that no child goes without good nutrition. 


Delegates will learn about the importance of healthy, affordable packed lunches and effective strategies for implementing a policy or guidance.
