Nutrition Policy

The home and the community have a responsibility to encourage healthy eating and lifestyles while students are learning and developing. We believe that nutritional foods and plenty of rest are essential for growth; physically, mentally, emotionally and intellectually. Nutritious food and drink choices are encouraged at all times,including lunch and recess. Fundraising efforts will recognize healthy choices. 

Deerwood recognizes the need to be flexible for certain celebrations during the school year and give teachers the flexibility to choose acceptable food, drinks, and snacks during special celebrations and events.

Deerwood School is an allergy aware school. Please do not send products containing peanuts to school. If you are sending class treats or baking please check with the classroom teacher regarding any other dietary concerns.
