School Lunch Menus
Children can have a two course traditional school meal, which has been prepared in our school kitchen, a school 'brunch bag' (a healthy sandwich lunch) or bring a packed lunch from home.
All school meals are prepared on site by our Edwards and Ward team. Menus adhere to the Government's Nutritional Standards and are planned with the help of a comprehensive analysis package and are approved by a Public Health Community Dietician. Edwards and Ward take care to limit the amount of salt used in the menus and whenever possible food is oven baked to reduce the fat content in dishes. The menus are planned to limit the amont of refined sugar and to increase the use of fruit and vegetables. Edwards and Ward do not use meat products that contain mechanically recovered meat. and aim to use locally sourced fresh meat. Children with special dietary requirements are able to enjoy safe, substantial and balanced meals. A vegetarian choice is always available.
