For school dinners we have three hot meal choices each day. Pupils select their choice at morning registration. Our cook, Mrs. Rowe is notified of these choices by 9.30 a.m. and then prepares the correct quantities of each meal. The children are then given a coloured token on entering the dining room matched to their meal choice and exchange it at the counter.
Consequently the pupils get what they have asked for and there should be very little waste. As parents, if you know what your child is going to choose it will also help you to plan your evening meal or teas.
There are three choices every day:
- A traditional hot meal
- A vegetarian option
- A jacket potato
Children can choose a different option every day, knowing they will get their choice and the meal will be ready for them.
