HC3S can provide special diets for pupils with allergies and intolerances. Special diets are provided for pupils with a medical problem, not just a dislike of certain food. HC3S will require medical evidence confirming your child’s allergy.
Our standard primary school menu is nut free. Our ingredients are manufactured in a nut free environment so all children can eat our standard menu without having to register for a special diet.
Parents will need to complete the form and take it to their doctors for signing. Once completed, please return it to school whereby we will scan the form and email it directly to HC3S. There is normally a 10 school day turnaround before the menu is created. School will be in touch once this has been received to agree implementation of the special diet.
The Eatwell Guide shows the different types of foods and drinks we should consume – and in what proportions – to have a healthy, balanced diet.
The Eatwell Guide shows the proportions of the main food groups that form a healthy, balanced diet:
• Eat at least 5 portions of a variety of fruit and vegetables every day
• Base meals on potatoes, bread, rice, pasta or other starchy carbohydrates; choosing wholegrain versions where possible
• Have some dairy or dairy alternatives (such as soya drinks); choosing lower fat and lower sugar options
• Eat some beans, pulses, fish, eggs, meat and other proteins (including 2 portions of fish every week, one of which should be oily)
• Choose unsaturated oils and spreads and eat in small amounts
• Drink 6-8 cups/glasses of fluid a day If consuming foods and drinks high in fat, salt or sugar have these less often and in small amounts.
