At Cathkin primary the children can either have a school lunch or bring in a packed lunch.
Have a look at the video below for some healthy lunch ideas.
SLC School lunches
We provide more than 4.8 million school meals each year. Every menu is nutritionally analysed to ensure it provides the correct healthy balance every growing child needs.
Menus have been designed to ensure the pupils receive the essential nutrients and vitamins with increased fruit, vegetables and fibre. Less red and red processed meat and less food containing high amounts of fat, sugar and salt.
Our menus reflect seasonal changes, allowing the pupils to enjoy different foods that are in season.
All meals meet the New Nutritional Requirements for Food and Drink in Schools (Scotland) Regulations 2020. Fresh drinking water is available with all meals. Pupils wishing to buy milk at lunchtime can purchase at a cost of 26p.
To comply with allergen legislation, all our schools have information regarding the 14 declarable allergens and display posters in the dining room directing anyone with an allergy to the Cook in Charge. In addition allergen information on every meal served in our schools can be downloaded from our Primary school menu – allergens and nutrition and Secondary school menu – allergens pages.
If your child has any cultural dietary needs including Halal, please fill in the Halal special diet request form available from the school office.
If your child has any dietary needs, food allergies or intolerances please pick up a Special, medically prescribed diet, or intolerance registration form at your child’s school. See further information on the Special diets page.
