School Meals -Aspens
We are always in the mood for good food!
We don’t just provide food, we play our part to educate children and raise awareness about nutrition, food and where it comes from, so that they can make informed and mindful choices. Feeding our future.
The school menu rotates on a three-week basis and refreshes for Autumn/Winter and Spring/Summer seasons. Here’s the current menu:
Snack Shack: We are really looking forward to supporting the children with some brilliant new breaktime snack items. You can view the menu here.
Breakfast club is back! Our popular breakfast club offers delicious food at affordable prices. The menu is available here.
How school meals can support your child's diet
All children need a nutritious, balanced meal to grow and meet their full potential.
School meals need to be compliant with the School Food Standards. These were created to help children develop healthy eating habits and ensure that they get the energy and nutrition they need across the whole school day. Therefore, parents should be able to trust that the school’s menu has been developed based on scientific nutrition research.
