New menu for after half term
Autumn/ Winter Menu 2018-19 – click here.
Dear Parents and children,
Thank you so much to all the children who completed my school lunch survey this month! The results were very interesting and your top choices and suggestions have helped me to come up with a great new menu!
You voted for your top choices to stay on the menu and the winner is ;
Roast Dinner, closely followed by Sausage Plait / Sausages.
And for Puddings…
Pancakes with Berry sauce, other popular choices were Flapjack & Chocolate cake
I have also looked at the National School Dinners survey of favorite choices across our country and included several of the winners in our new menu. The top meal voted for across schools in the UK was Chicken curry and Chocolate cake, both of which are included.
We will be using our local butcher, Reynolds in Exmouth along with our local high street grocer CJB for fresh fruit and vegetables on our menu.All our fish is MSC sourced.
The menus have an icon key for allergens, I have used the standardized icons for the eight most common allergens. If you would like a copy of the full allergen analysis please see me for details it is kept in the kitchen if you would like to check anything.
I have separate menus for our vegetarian and dairy free children. If you have a child with a medical food allergy please do arrange to pop into the kitchen for a chat and we will do our best to accommodate them. We do have several children with wheat intolerance and coeliac children for whom I am happy to offer alternatives.
As always I am happy to receive any feedback from parents and children especially on the new menu, we can and do make changes following feedback so please do get in touch!
Thank you for your continuing support
