Maple Cross JMI & Nursery

School Meals

At our school we promote healthy eating at lunchtime. We provide a Pupil Choice Menu each term where children can pick from a variety of healthy and nutritious meals each day.

We offer a selection of two hot dishes, one being a vegetarian option, or a school packed lunch. If children bring a packed lunch from home we encourage a healthy balance of food including fruit or vegetables. Due to allergies within the school there should be no nuts or products containing nuts. Chocolate spread should also not be sent in as it is not a healthy option and we can not determine if this is the nut or no nut version.

If you would like to view our Pupil Choice Menu for this term please follow the link below.

Our food is provided by Hertfordshire Catering and ordered through the SchoolGrid System. Please click here for information on SchoolGrid.

School meals are free in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.   Children in Years 3-6 are charged at £2.80 per meal from the 1st April 2022, however, some children may also be eligible for free school meals. Click here for further details, or come in and ask us for more details.
