School dinners have been in and out of the news over the last few years. As parents we know that our children need a healthy breakfast and a nutritional lunch every day. We know that hungry children cannot concentrate and cannot learn, which in turn knocks confidence. Good nutrition is critical to a child’s achievement.
At King's we aim to meet or exceed the governments food and nutrition standards. We do not have vending machines filled with fizzy drinks, crisps and sweets on the premises.
We ensure that, wherever possible:
- Fresh ingredients will be used, not processed convenience food.
- Food will be baked not fried.
- Salt levels will be low.
- Ingredients will be locally sourced, free range and organic.
We have selected Harrisons as our contracted caterer, serving breakfast, breaktime snacks and lunch. Hot food is provided on a three week menu system, enhanced by speciality, regional and themed day menus. There are also cold food options readily available.
