For example, we encourage the following:

  • Sandwiches
  • Cheese and crackers
  • Fruit
  • Dried fruit
  • Popcorn

Recommended drinks:

  • Milk
  • Fruit Juice
  • Water

We make it clear that the following are not allowed:

  • Nuts (due to nut allergies)
  • Sweets
  • Chocolate and chocolate related products
  • Fizzy drinks
  • High energy drinks e.g. Lucozade Sport
  • Chewing Gum
  • Crisps
  • Crisp related products
