Every St. Michael’s child from Pre-Nursery to Year 6 has a nutritionally balanced, hot school lunch each day. New kitchen facilities installed in December 2020, enable the school to prepare and cook top-quality meals and breaktime snacks on-site. Working with Harrison Catering, St. Michael’s is proud that food provision is included as part of your child’s termly fees.
Jon White, Head of Client Services for Harrison Catering provides the food ethos behind the St. Michael’s menu:
‘Harrison understands that what children eat affects their health and their ability to learn and perform in the classroom. At St. Michael’s our catering team will provide nutritious, balanced meals and we will work to educate the pupils on how to make healthier food choices. Our goal is to instil a love and understanding of fresh, healthy food at a young age that will positively influence them throughout life. All Harrison staff receive training in how to prepare and serve healthier food through the company’s bespoke Eat Well Live Well© training programme.
In addition, our focus on fresh food means that only minimal amounts of fried foods appear on our menus – in fact we don’t even have a deep fat fryer in our kitchen. We also aim to maximise access to fruit and vegetables by offering a choice of cooked vegetables, salads, healthier snacks and fresh fruit daily. Every egg we use is British-sourced and free range, all our fresh meat is Red Tractor certified, British and fully traceable and all our fish holds the Marine Stewardship Council certification, meaning we are only serving fish from sustainable stocks and species not on the endangered list.’
To support all of the above, Harrison Catering have a comprehensive policy for children with food allergies and intolerances.
