At Worsley Bridge we use a catering company called Nourish to provide our children with their lunches as they are passionate about providing nutritional food that the children enjoy even the definition of our name reflects this ethos. To nourish is “to provide with the food or other substances necessary for growth, health and good condition.”
Their menus are based on seasonal fresh foods that use less fat, less salt and less sugar, all our meals are prepared daily by our experienced cooks.
Each day there is a selection of hot homemade dishes, one of which is always vegetarian. There is a minimum of two vegetables and four salad choices daily. All of our menus are well balanced with protein and carbohydrates. We encourage increased fibre in the child’s diet and operate a nut free policy.
Nourish’s menus have been prepared in compliance with the School Food Trust Nutrient Standards and have all been fully nutritionally analysed by our nutritionalist.
Menus change in line with the seasons, we currently offer a 3 weekly cycle 3 times per year. At certain times of the year we have theme weeks in accordance with the school curriculum. Nourish also work with our school councils, arranging taster days to sample new possible dishes for the upcoming menu and provide Nourish with feedback.
Here is what some of our children have to say about their school dinners…
“I love school dinners. I prefer having a hot meal rather than sandwiches. The roast dinners are delicious’” Lilly 6W
“School Dinners are really nice, especially when we have special themed days. The pudding are tasty as well. There is always a good range of food to choose from” Rebekah 6W
School Dinners are £2.20 per day, which is payable at the school office. Please do hesitate to contact us if you have questions.
