The recent introduction of our ‘Hydro Pit’ to our dining room during lunchtimes is to encourage students to re hydrate themselves with fresh water, infused naturally with fresh fruit and eliminate any artificial sugars. We’ll be offering two infusions daily and choice will include: Lemon,Orange, Lime, Strawberry, Cucumber & Mint, Watermelon & Basil, Blueberry & Pomegranate, Pineapple & Mango, St Clements & Iced Tea.
As we humans are made up of nearly 60% water it is important to stay hydrated. Increasing our water intake can help keep the body healthy and maintain good function of our key systems, including heart, brain and muscles, as well as aiding digestion. In addition it can help to improve physical performance, reduce fatigue and improves concentration all of which are helpful during a school day!
No only are we looking at the water we put in our bodies, we are also conscious of the environmental footprint that plastic bottles leave on our planet and so we are encouraging our children to use re-usable water containers at the fountains during the school day as well. This means we will no longer be providing single use plastic bottles for sale at the Snack Bar.
