We aim to provide healthy and nutritious meals, whilst meeting the dietary requirements of all our children. This may include children suffering from allergies, requiring a diet free from gluten or dairy and also being a vegetarian.
Our hot meals are provided offsite by, The Fine Foods Store, in Stamford, who freshly prepare the children’s meals on a daily basis and ensure that the children gain both nutition and enjoyment at meal times.
We regularly ask parents and carers for feedback and suggestions for meal ideas.
