Cumnor Boys Healthy Food Choices

Healthy bodies are essential for a healthy mind.

Lunchtime is an important part of the school day at Cumnor House. It’s a great opportunity for the children to recharge their batteries and enjoy some social time with their friends – and a healthy and nutritious meal is a big part of that experience.

Thomas Franks (a leading provider of catering for independent schools) work with us to deliver tasty, freshly-prepared meals that have been developed by award-winning chefs.

Our lunch menu operates on a four week rolling programme and we cater for all dietary needs and provide a menu that offers halal and vegetarian options. Home-made bread and a varied salad bar are also available every day.

Nutrition

Prioritising healthy eating.

Together, we aim to embed the importance of eating healthily from a young age.

Part of this journey includes encouraging our students to care for the environment through sustainable food sources. As such, we support British farmers, and we buy locally sourced eggs and milk.

We offer a wide range of dishes to choose from:
  • A selection of hot meals, with plenty of vegetarian options

  • A full salad bar, with bread rolls or baguettes

  • A selection of hot and cold desserts

  • Soup or jacket potatoes are available every day

We support children in developing their culinary curiosity.

allergies

Catering for special diets.

There is a triple-checking system in place for all Cumnor House campuses for students with special diets. This system is to ensure they are catered for safely.

Students with food allergies from Reception through to Year 6 are catered for. Relevant information will need to be provided by the student’s medical consultant, general practitioner or registered dietitian; to ensure that Thomas Franks can safely meet the needs of the child.

If you have any questions regarding the options available, please email cumnor@thomasfranks.co.uk and they will be happy to help.
