In Derbyshire we have put a great deal of time, effort and money into creating healthy menus and promoting the healthy choices to pupils. We also want to provide parents with all the information they need about school dinners.
Our menus are on a three weekly cycle which changes every six months and include vegetarian options. Meals include a main meal, desert and a drink, which is excellent value for money. Most schools offer 2 choices of main meal or a jacket potato, vegetables, salad, fresh fruit, bread and drinking water are freely available every day. Themed lunches are offered on a monthly basis for primary schools to create a fun eating experience and to build interest in the food offering.
If your child has any special dietary requirements then please let school know. All our menus meet the current Government nutritional standards. You can download our nutritional information with RDA guides here.
The recommended meal price for a Primary school child is £2.10 this is excellent value for money! (Price correct at September 2018).
Please note that sometimes our cooks have to make menu changes at short notice (for instance if there is a problem with food deliveries) but we aim to keep this to a minimum.
