Nutrition at New Life


We appreciate our parents’ efforts to provide a nutritious, well planned lunch for their children. We know it can be challenging and we want to make lunch time a positive experience for all of our children. For this reason, we ask that all parents, as per the Parent Handbook, pack foods that meet the following requirements:

  • If your child’s lunch needs to be kept cold, please pack an ice pack. Fridges are not available for lunches.

  • Microwaves are available to heat up food to a maximum of 30 seconds. Please do not include items that require multiple steps for heating up (i.e. Easy Mac).

  • All foods should be items your child can eat with minimal assistance.

  • Please do not pack any carbonated beverages. We prefer that you bring a cup of water, but if your child requires milk/juice, please pack a separate cup for refills of water as we can not use the same cup for milk/juice and water.

  • We are a peanut free school, so please do not pack any peanut products (peanut butter, Reese’s, or granola bars with peanuts). A great alternative is almond butter, cashew butter, or hazel nut spread.


We appreciate your assistance in helping us keep lunch time a great time!
