An initiative developed for first and primary schools with the aim of delivering a desirable and individual menu choice. The concept behind the initiative is schools will have ownership of their catering and be able to develop a suitable menu, encouraging more children to stay for a school lunch.
The menu has three main meal choices, plus a vegetarian option, with each school choosing one of the three main courses on offer, daily, throughout the three-week cycle. In effect, this is a standard menu and children with special dietary requirements will be catered for in the usual way.
The menu choice is decided in partnership with the unit manager, headteacher, school council, or School Nutrition Action Group (SNAG). All involve children in the process.
Fuel to go
A concept used in middle schools. It is a meal deal with a variety of choices that include freshly made sandwiches, jacket potatoes, pasta pots, drinks, crudités and desserts.
