Our meals are provided by Caterlink, who supply lunches to many schools in the London Borough of Islington. It is our goal to ensure that meals appeal to a wide range of children with differing ethnic backgrounds and tastes.
Caterlink's primary objective for catering at Hugh Myddelton is to provide pupils, staff and visitors with a choice of homemade, nutritious and well-balanced meals. Menus will reflect the requirements and tastes of pupils and staff and will be continually monitored to ensure the menu choices encourage the highest levels of uptake.
A three week menu cycle will be changed seasonally, in consultation with our Development Chef who works closely with the school and the Council.
Caterlink will ensure red meat is available at least twice a week and fish at least once a week, which will include an oily fish. Vegetarian protein options will include beans and pulses and there will always be a choice of two bread/cereals or potato choices. Wherever possible, sauces and dressings are made with low fat ingredients and cooking oil and salt is used to a minimum. Alternative low fat fillings will be available for sandwiches and jacket potatoes and low fat yogurt and desserts are available.
Freshly cut fruit and low fat fruit yogurt will be available everyday as an alternative to the daily homemade dessert, a treat once in a while such as ice cream on a Friday helps to add a bit of fun into school meals for pupils.
