Fruit Fly Restrictions – Tuesday 2 February 2021
Dear Parent / Caregiver
The department of Primary Industries and Regions (PIRSA) has updated its information about fruit fly restrictions in South Australia.
This might change the types of fruit and vegetables your child can bring to school / preschool / childcare.
Our school, preschool, children’s centre is located in the green not impacted area.
If you live in the green not impacted area
Your child can bring any type of fruit or vegetable to school, preschool or childcare.
If you live in the red outbreak or yellow suspension area:
Your child must not bring any fruit or vegetables on this list to school, preschool or childcare. This applies even if it has been cut up.
Instead, PIRSA has provided a list of alternative fruit and vegetable options suitable for lunch and breaks.
Please note that grated, dried, frozen, cooked or pureed fruit and vegetables of any kind are acceptable in any area.
We appreciate your cooperation as we help protect South Australia from fruit fly.
