The Department of Education and Children’s School Meals Service provides a good range of healthy meal choices, in order to fulfill some of the daily nutritional requirements of primary school children.
The School Meals Service serves up some 3,000 meals a day, or well over half a million a year, to primary school pupils.
Staff use computer software to analyse the exact ingredients of menus against standards set down by the UK Government, ensuring they meet minimum requirements for protein, zinc, iron and vitamins and don’t exceed maximum recommended levels of salt, sugar and fat.
Menus are on a four-week cycle and are completely changed twice a year, in the autumn and spring, to ensure pupils enjoy a variety of foods.
The School Meals Service welcomes feedback on its meals, new ideas and recipes. Please visit its wiki at https://www2.sch.im/groups/schoolmeals1/
