Info for Parents
Parents can be reassured that we serve nutritionally balanced meals in schools that meet the Government’s recommendations for nutrition.
Research shows that enjoying a healthy, nutritionally balanced meal at lunchtime helps as child’s concentration in the afternoon.
It is also clear that a balanced diet in childhood can prevent health problems in the short-term and later in life. Our menus form part of a child’s overall balanced diet and encourages healthy eating from an early age.
Parents can also be assured that there’s plenty of choice – there’s always a hot meal available alongside an alternative of a sandwich, wrap or jacket potato.
Not forgetting that important dessert, children can choose from a hot option while fruit and yogurt are always on offer too if preferred.
School meals are great value too, costing less than a packed lunch. We also work with schools offering free school meals – under the Universal Infant Free School Meal initiative, all children in Key Stage 1 are entitled to a free school meal (From Reception to end of Year 2). Contact your school administrator for more details.
Parents can be comforted that if their child is enjoying a school meal then it is part of a nutritionally balanced menu and has been made from locally sourced and quality ingredients.
