Your Choice has been developed for first and primary schools with the aim of delivering a desirable and individual menu choice. The concept behind the initiative is that schools will have ownership of their catering and will 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. 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), involving the children in the process of food choices.
Fuel to Go is a meal deal available in middle schools with a variety of choices. The meal includes freshly made sandwiches, jacket potatoes, pasta pots, drinks, fruit, healthy nibbles and desserts.
