School Meals

Our diet is under the spotlight more than ever before with the recent announcement that there are more overweight people in the world than those who are under-nourished. What we eat has been shown to make a great difference to our health, energy levels and wellbeing. This is particularly important for children. Healthy eating improves childrens' behaviour and their ability to concentrate at school and at home.
At Barley Hill we have invested a lot in making sure that our full production kitchen can produce hot, nutritional meals every day, as well as salads and fresh fruit. We are keen for as many children as possible to have our meals which meet the government nutritional standards and also offer food that the children will enjoy eating.

The cost of a meal is £2.40 a day.
