Packed Lunch Policy


This event will follow of from the official launch of the new resources and provide you with all the skills, tools and confidence to really make a difference to packed lunches. The new policy promotes equality and inclusion for all, aiming to ensure that no child goes without good nutrition while they are at school and beyond the school gate.


Delegates will learn about the importance of healthy, affordable packed lunches and effective strategies for implementing the city wide policy. This practical and informative training event is based on the Leeds evidence based packed lunch guidance and toolkit that have been informed by city wide consultation and endorsed by Leeds Youth Council.

The guidance and the child-friendly toolkit includes a template policy, surveys, lesson plans, menus, tips, leaflet templates, posters, assemblies and much more. There will be an exclusive opportunity to access the resource as a reduced rate for those who attend this event.
