School meals are a great way for children to improve their eating habits and learn about the social side of eating with their friends. Our school meals are healthy, tasty, and meet children’s nutritional needs.
Fussy eaters often thrive on school meals – parents tell us their children have tried all sorts of foods in school that they refuse at home.
Children can’t concentrate if they haven’t eaten a good breakfast before school, so offer a free Breakfast Club. Students have the choice of low-sugar cereals, fruit, toast and crumpets, plus a choice of hot and cold drinks.
