Allergen and dietary requirements

Our Menu Team is dedicated to ensuring that every child feels valued and included by providing a wide range of healthy food choices that cater to their specific needs. We understand that each child is unique, which is why we offer bespoke and individualised menus for those with special dietary requirements, of which we currently serve over 400 children! We take great pride in developing our menus, working tirelessly to source the freshest ingredients and create dishes that are both nutritious and delicious. We believe that everyone should have the same lunchtime experience, and for this reason, we are constantly innovating to ensure that our meals for allergic children are just as appetising as those served to their peers.

At The School Lunch Company, we appreciate that allergen-free foods can often lack flavour. That’s why we work closely with our suppliers to source products that taste great. From scrumptious dairy-free cookies to mouth-watering gluten-free pizzas, we strive to provide a lunchtime experience that exceeds expectations. Our meals are carefully planned and developed according to the Government’s Nutritional Standards for school lunches, and we take pride in this. We believe that every child deserves access to fresh, healthy, and nutritious food, which is why we prioritise sourcing locally produced ingredients wherever possible.

We understand that a healthy, nutritious school meal is essential for students’ physical wellbeing and plays a crucial role in the education process. Our aim is to encourage all children to enjoy a school meal and reap the benefits of a well-rounded, healthy diet. Whether they have dietary requirements or not, every child deserves the very best, and we are committed to providing just that.


If a child is allergic to one of the 14 main allergens, we will ensure a menu that they enjoy and that any dishes containing that allergen/s are not served to ensure no mistakes are made.

Dietary requirements

Parents can notify the school office of their child’s dietary requirements, whether religious or medical and these will be noted on the system to ensure they are catered for.

Vegetarian options are always catered for in addition to the meat or fish choice on the day.
