Packed lunches are provided by the parents.  The University of Cambridge Holiday Playscheme operates a 'No Nut Policy' and ask parents to adhere to this for the safety and wellbeing of some of the children attending our setting. We are unable to reheat lunches so please bear this in mind when packing your child’s lunch. UCHP advises parents to add cool packs to lunch boxes in the warmer weather as we are unable to keep lunches refrigerated.

Playscheme is a very busy environment, children are always busy and on the go. You might wish to think about this when packing your child’s lunch. We find that the children are often hungrier at Playscheme.

Lunchtime is at 12:30 pm and we sit together for 30 minutes. This is a time when we encourage the children to sit down and talk about their day together, the types of food they like to eat and other popular topics. Playworkers make every effort to promote healthy eating and endeavour to lead by example.

UCHP provides a range of snacks for the children mid morning and mid afternoon.
