Primary themed food days

Primary theme days

We hold theme days to fit in with what your child is learning at school. 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!

Our all-new theme day calendar includes menus and posters specially created for cultural and festive celebrations such as Christmas, Easter and Harvest Festival, as well as Pancake Day, Sports Day and World Ocean Day. We have even included a Queen’s Jubilee themed menu for June 2022.

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

We also bespoke theme day menus linked to the curriculum. Theme days help the children learn about what life was like years ago or what people eat in other parts of the world. Our theme day menu template is an ideal tool to promote all bespoke events.

Our Food Development team carefully create menus that fit the theme whilst ensuring that the children still get the right balance of calories and nutrition.

Arrange a theme day

If you work with a school, please speak to your District Manager to review our theme day toolkit that includes an academic calendar of events, promotional newsletter content for parents and suggested menu.
