A healthy diet is important for children’s development and a good lunch will ensure that they are able to concentrate during the afternoon. At Allfarthing you can choose between a cooked meal or a packed lunch from home. Our school lunches are all cooked on the premises from fresh ingredients. There is a choice of hot and cold food and always a vegetarian option. Children can have salad and fresh fruit with every meal and our lunches conform to all the food standards and nutritional recommendations.
