Packed lunches

Active Sefton promotes children to eat a healthy balanced diet and get active. Just like our schools in Sefton, we ask that you try and make healthier lunch choices and do not give your children chocolate, sweets, cakes or fizzy drinks. Below are some ideas to help you pack up a healthy lunch box for your child to bring with them to our school holiday camps.

  • Swap white bread to wholemeal bread for sandwiches
  • Swap fizzy and juice drinks for water
  • Swap high sugar, high fat products such as chocolate sweets, cakes and crisps for fruit, sugar free jelly and plain popcorn
  • Include some chopped up vegetables as a snack with a low calorie dip, such as hummus

This lunch box guidance is intended to help children develop and practice healthy eating habits. A nutritious meal at lunch time can help children concentrate and increase their energy levels and performance. Give some of the swaps a try! 

Mobile Phones

Please can we ask children to leave mobile phones/tablets at home or in their bags during the duration of Be Active sessions. As part of the registration process, our coaches make sure that we have contact numbers for all parents/guardians, so should we need to contact you at any stage during the day, we are able to do so. 
We are unable to take responsibility for electronic equipment.
