At St Edmund's School, our great school lunches are provided by Karen and her team from Lancashire County Council Commercial Group.
LCCG uses an industry recognised nutritional software system to ensure that menus are nutritionally balanced and meet the tough nutrient based food standards.
These menus aim to help children enjoy healthy balanced meals containing lower fat, protein items and plenty of starchy carbohydrates, accompanied by lots of vegetables, salad and fruit. Using healthier ingredients for the recipes and ideas from children the menus have been developed to meet the Government's nutritional standards.
You can be confident that if you choose school meals your child will be enjoying a meal with friends, eating a variety of foods that meets his/her nutritional needs and be learning healthier food habits for the future.
Over 75% of our dishes are homemade and freshly prepared using tried and tested traditional recipes we know children will love. There’s always fresh fruit and salad, homemade bread and locally produced fruit yoghurt available daily and, where children require one, a filled baked potato or hot sandwich.
