What are the nutritional guarantees associated with school meals?
School meals by law must meet the School Food Standards. These standards ensure that when menus are developed they are considerate of children’s nutritional needs. Implementing these standards ensures that healthier food items, like fruits and vegetables, whole grains and oily fish are promoted and less healthy items, like deep fried foods, manufactured meat products and added sugar drinks are restricted or prohibited on menus. Every day you can be assured that a school meal will offer:
• 2 portions of fruits and vegetables
• A dairy food item rich in calcium for strong bones and teeth
• Starchy carbohydrates to provide energy
• A protein source to support the body’s growth and repair.
Special diets and pupils with allergies can be catered for when Chartwells are supplied with medical evidence. Please discuss your child's needs with the school office.
