Lunchtime Provison

Family Dining (Lunch Provision)


All children will experience family dining at Springwood Infant School and be served ‘hot dinners’ daily. This is to ensure that we meet our accountability to provide a well-balanced meal for your child. It is great value for money (costing £380 per child) and will save you the considerable expense of providing a packed lunch.

Letters in relation to this item can be obtained from the school office.

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.
