Our nutritious school lunch helps children flourish by giving them the right balance of nutrients and energy to enhance concentration during afternoon lessons, in assembly or on the sports field. It contributes to building lifelong healthy eating habits that will allow them to flourish as their minds and bodies grow.

Theme days 

When it comes to theme days, our teams are full of beans. From decorating the dining hatch, making themed meals to dressing up in character, they bring fun to lunchtimes. 

We hold theme days to fit in with what your child is learning at school. Our Food Development team carefully create lunch menus that fit the theme whilst ensuring that the children still get the right balance of calories and nutrition.  If your child has a food allergy or intolerance, visit our frequently asked questions to find out more.

Even if your child doesn’t usually have a school lunch, why not get them to try one on a theme day and join in the fun with their friends. They might even try something new! 

Look out for our newly designed colourful posters to advertise each theme day at your school.
