School menus are now measured against tough national standards - so by choosing school meals for your child, you know they’re being offered healthy, tasty dishes to fuel them up for the afternoon.

Getting it just right
It’s only natural to be concerned about whether your child is eating the right things, getting enough food and if they will actually eat anything at all. That’s why lunchtimes are well supervised. School cooks know new or different foods may not have been seen or tried before by children and will let children have tasters and encourage them to experiment. Find out what your children are being served in school - ask your child’s school to give you a menu. Every school is different at lunchtime, that’s why we encourage you to talk to your child’s school about the lunches they offer. You can also find out if they provide family dining, classroom dining, or sittings by year group. Schools want to hear what you think about the food and the dining area, so only Comm uit fr why not see if you erved s and can try a taster bles vegeta meal yourself?
