Why have school meals?
School meals at Buxton School are designed to provide a varied, healthy and interesting menu for our children and are excellent value for money.
The meals are cooked and prepared fresh each day to supply a good balance of healthy foods to support growth and development and to encourage long-term good eating habits. Meals are varied, to introduce children to different foods, including Caribbean, Asian, Mediterranean, and traditional dishes.
Meals consist of a main course and dessert, freshly baked bread and seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables. Children can also select from the fresh daily salad bar.
School meals provide your child with the opportunity to develop social skills while they enjoy eating with other children. Research has shown that a healthy, nutritious school meal can provide your child with the energy required to concentrate in class and cope with the demands of the day.
