As part of the Copenhagen Primary School’s healthy school programme children are made aware of how they can improve their own health and wellbeing. Lessons are given, workshops held and free fruit is supplied to children in Key Stage 1 daily.
The school’s caterers (Caterlink) .
‘Caterlink are proud to bring healthy and seasonal food to our school meals, and to serve meat and fish that is sustainably sourced.’
Dinners are served with children of different ages sitting at the same table. Although children can have a packed lunch, the school meals service provides a healthy and tasty lunch that we can wholeheartedly recommend.
They 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 an 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, low fat yoghurt and desserts are served and skimmed milk for cereals.
Freshly cut fruit and low fat fruit yoghurt 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. Although a bowl of cherries or strawberries arranged nicely can sometimes appeal more to the younger children as a treat and we will always offer this as an alternative.
