Bridgend Catering Services believe there are many benefits to having a school lunch.
Meals are freshly made, healthy and nutritionally balanced.
It is recommended that we eat 5 portions of fruit and vegetables each day. On a daily basis a school meal offers vegetables, salads and fruit for children to choose, therefore helping towards the '5 a day'.
Convenience - saving you time preparing packed lunches.
Enhanced learning abilities - studies have shown that children are more receptive in classes if they have had a fulfilling lunchtime meal.
Teaches children social skills, table manners and how to make meal choices.
Allows a child to relax in a safe, supervised environment with friends.
The primary menus fully comply with the Welsh Government's Appetite for Life food, drink and nutrient standards.
We have an excellent reputation for cleanliness and hygiene and we are committed to meeting all Health, Safety and Hygiene Regulations.
Purchasing procedures assist the sourcing of safe ingredients and ensure the necessary delivery and storage methods to maintain the highest levels of food safety.
We have modified our recipes to reduce sugar, salt and fat content and increase fibre.
We avoid using artificial additives and colourings and do not knowingly use food containing GM (genetically modified) ingredients.
We regard your child as a valued customer and serve all children in a friendly and supportive manner.
