School meals

kitchen

As part of Luton Borough Council catering service, at The Meads we understand the importance of school meals for children, both for physical needs and also as a key part of the educational process. We like to encourage all children to enjoy school meals, to allow them to benefit from a wide choice and at the same time to take part in the social experience with friends.

 (See as well: The School Food Plan)

Our school meals are made with the children’s development in mind. We aim for the school meal to be a pleasing, positive educational experience where children can enjoy eating and conversing while learning the benefits of healthy eating and getting the energy needed to cope with the physical and mental demands of the school day.

 (See as well: Universal Free School Meals)

Our kitchen manager, Mrs McLoughlin, has been awarded “Kitchen Manager of the year 2011” creating menus to suit the needs of the school, and helping children to choose a balanced diet, offering a choice of freshly cooked main meals and desserts every day, which includes

- Plenty of fibre rich starchy foods as bread, pasta, potatoes, rice an cereals, which provide energy as well as vitamins and minerals.

- Fruit, vegetables and yoghurt each day which will provide vitamins, minerals and fibre. - Moderate amounts of protein such as fish, chicken and alternative sources including beans and pulses.

- Less fat, especially saturates, the type found in fatty meats, hard cheese, butter and fried foods. - Less sugar, keep sweet foods to mealtimes only to lessen the risk of tooth decay.
