School meals 

What does school offer?

 

Walsall Catering Service, the council’s own catering department, provides school meals in 64 schools across the borough.

 

Meals are cooked freshly every day by well trained staff, using high quality ingredients. All menus comply with the Government’s new food and nutrient standards introduced to ensure children are guaranteed a tasty and nutritious meal.

 

School meals are now made using less sugar, salt and fat, with plenty of fresh vegetables and fruit. They include a wide range of healthy options, and combine traditional favourite dishes such as roast dinners, with new and exciting ranges including chicken joe wraps.

 

A wider range of fresh fruit and vegetables are on offer with strawberries, grapes and melon a regular feature, alongside the staples of bananas, apples and oranges. Salad bars are now available in all primary and secondary schools.
