Aspens Menu October 2020

Here are pictures of our meals. This is a set of pictures of Aspens’ standard menu.  Nelson’s menu is slightly customised, so some of our meals may not have pictures, and some of the pictures may not be on our menu.  

Families can pre select their child’s lunch options 6 weeks in advance, via the Parent App or you can contact the school office to inform them of your child’s choices.

Allergies & Food Intolerance

If your child has any sort of food allergy, it is important that you let us know.  Please fill in the Special Diets form at the bottom of the page and return it with medical evidence of your child’s allergy.

This Sample Menu has information from Aspens about their approach to Allergens.

Lifestyle and Religious Diets

If your child has a particular diet for religious or lifestyle reasons, it would be useful if you could let us know.  We provide at least one vegetarian option every day, and we think that this will sufficient for most people with special diets, as you can manage this yourself by making the appropriate meal choice.

The meat we serve is NOT Halal or Kosher.  Our menu clearly shows if a meal if vegetarian, or what meat or fish is in it.  Families can pre select their child’s lunch options 6 weeks in advance, via the Parent App which clearly shows if a meal is vegetarian, or contains meat or fish. Or you can contact the school office to inform them of your child’s choices

We think this caters for anyone who is Vegetarian, Pescatarian, Halal or Kosher; and for people who don’t eat Beef, Fish, Shellfish, Lamb or Pork. 

If you require a Vegan meal, or if you have any questions or problems, please get in touch.
