School Meals Prices
Did you know?
We provide a wide range of food choices, created within and in support of The Healthy Eating in Schools (Nutritional Standards and requirements)(Wales) regulations 2013. Our priority is to ensure that all menus provide balanced and nutritious food choices, as an important and integral part of school life. Eating healthy nutritionally balanced meals helps support a young person’s continued growth and development, boosting concentration, improving performance and active participation throughout the school day.
Here at Flintshire we are committed to healthy eating and we work hard with schools to promote the health and welfare of pupils. We continue to deliver the best food possible and want to help young people in Flintshire to discover and enjoy new and exciting foods that will encourage them to live a healthy and active life. Children consume about a third of their food intake during the school day. A recent study found that a school meal contains more vegetables, starchy food and protein than a typical packed lunch. The same study also showed packed lunches were much more likely to contain confectionery and crisps, something that isn't on the menu in Flintshire schools!
Healthy Schools Scheme
Making school lunchtime fun and educational
To encourage healthy eating and make meal times fun for our younger customers, we have a calendar of themed events which your child will enjoy. Promotions are linked with curriculum based subjects as well as events in the media. Every third Thursday, primary school lunchtimes are transformed into Theme Day Thursday’s.
We aim to educate children and encourage them to try new foods at many of our themed events. Keep a look out for the next promotion at your school.
For information on theme Day Thursday at your child’s primary school, contact the School Cook who will be happy to help!
Promotions will be held at the discretion of each individual school. Dates may differ in some schools. Menus and menu items may be subject to change. Each school reserves the right to withdraw a promotion at any time or offer alternative prizes if necessary. Additional promotions may be held in schools that are not advertised on the site.
