At Twerton Infant School lunch time is a very important part of the day. We work hard to create a positive, enjoyable and healthy lunch time experience. All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 benefit from the the Government’s offer of Universal Infant Free School Meals. Our varied menu contains both vegetarian and non-vegetarian options and special diets can be catered for on request.
The school meals are prepared and cooked at our neighbouring school, St Michael’s Junior School by an independent catering company Edwards and Ward.
Here is a copy of the current menu (from 4th November 2019): MENU
Twerton Infant School is proud of its Healthy Schools Status. This award is in recognition of the work we do with the children with regard to healthy eating and developing healthy eating habits. To help support our work we need your help in promoting a healthy packed lunch. If your child is bringing in a packed lunch please could you ensure that it is healthy. Please do not include sweets in the packed lunch and perhaps only include crisps a couple of times a week. Drinks may be brought in but not fizzy drinks or those in glass bottles, or cans. Packed lunches should be brought in a named unbreakable container.
Free milk and fruit!
Free milk is provided for all children during the Reception year, if your child does not drink milk we will provide water or feel free to send in a carton of juice (no fizzy drinks please). All children throughout the school will receive a piece of fruit a day.
Please inform staff of any allergies your child may have as this is vital especially during lunchtimes or cookery.
