In Derbyshire we have put a great deal of time, effort and money into creating healthy menus and promoting the healthy choices to pupils. We also want to provide parents with all the information they need about school dinners and that is why we have developed this website.
Most schools offer 2 choices of hot main meals or a jacket potato per day. The menu is on a 3 week cycle and changes every 6 months. We offer a standard portion of a main meal with vegetables, salad, bread, fresh fruit and drinking water freely available.
All medical diets are catered for, our Menu development Officer creates specialist menus to ensure each child has a meal that meets their requirements. To apply for a medical diet you must have a referral from a medical proffessional and complete a "medical diet form" which can be obtained from your school.
All our menus meet the current Government nutritional standards. You can download our nutritional information with RDA guides here.
