Why not for just £6 add a Watchtree kid’s packed lunch to your basket?
The packed lunch includes:
a choice of sandwiches, a drink, a piece of fruit, a yoghurt, and a packet of crisps.

Our Watchtree lunch bags take the stress of lunchtime prep away from you.
Select your food from the options, one child at a time and add to your basket.
On the day, their lunch will be conveniently prepared for them and given to our education officer for distribution.
