Food and Nutrition
At Mowden Hall School, we know that nutritious and delicious food is key to each child’s wellbeing.
Napoleon believed ‘an army marches on its stomach’, which is why we put such an emphasis on high quality, delicious food to provide the energy that drives our pupils and staff.
We have breakfast options every day of the week. This includes a selection of everyday items as well as pastry and toast stations, cereal and yogurt bars.
We have bespoke lunch and dinner menus for hot meals, salad options, a packed lunch offer for matches and desserts.
We celebrate special festivals such as Christmas and St Patrick’s Day with themed meals and have regular Try it Tuesdays where children are encouraged to suggest family favourite dishes or something they have tried on holidays and are cooked for the whole school to try!
We are a nut aware school and can cater to students with other allergies and food intolerances. Please let us know if your child has any specific food requirements.
We work with local suppliers. They only source red tractor British meat and sustainable fish that is MSC certified. They endeavour to buy British fruit and vegetables where possible. They support Fair Trade products to ensure a fair deal for growers. Their milk and cream are supplied by British farmers and they only use free-range eggs.
Part of the way we encourage healthy eating is to provide beautifully cooked food with plenty of variety and fresh fruit and vegetables.
