Summer term menu
Dear Parents and children,
Thank you so much to all the children who completed my school lunch survey this month! The results were very interesting and your top choices and suggestions have helped me to come up with a great new menu.
You voted for your top choices to stay on the menu and the winner is ;
Roast Dinner, closely followed by Sausage Plait / Sausages and Fish and chips
And for Puddings…
Chocolate cookie, followed by Jelly and ice cream and cheesecake
Our local suppliers
We will continue using our local butcher, Reynolds in Exmouth along with our local high street grocer CJB for fresh fruit and vegetables on our menu.All our fish is MSC sourced.
We are introducing a few new vegetarian/ vegan options as our number of pupils and adults adopting these diets has grown. These include the delicious Butternut squash vegan pasty, the Linda McCartney sausages, Quorn dippers and Quorn meatballs.
We have continued to reduce the sugar content of our menu, using reduced sugar jelly, ketchup, baked beans and reducing the amount of sugar in our home baking.
The menus have an icon key for allergens, I have used the standardized icons for the eight most common allergens. If you would like a copy of the full allergen analysis please see me for details.
If you have a child with a medical food allergy please do arrange to pop into the kitchen for a chat and we will do our best to accommodate them. We do have several children with wheat intolerance and coeliac children for whom I am happy to offer alternatives.As always, I am happy to receive any feedback from parents and children, especially on the new menu. We can and do make changes following feedback so please do get in touch!
Thank you for your continuing support
