The full plate service is the standard for all HC3S primary school meals, allowing each child to select a main item from the menu, which automatically comes accompanied by vegetables, carbohydrate and a dessert (fruit is always a dessert option).
Hampshire menus adhere to the nutritional standards that came into effect from September 2008 and each child has the opportunity to have at least two portions from a selection of vegetables, salad and fruit with their meal. Hampshire continues to offer additional bread as a free extra to their meals and water is available throughout the lunch period.
Hot dinners cost £2.40 per meal, cheques are to be made payable to HCC. Money is to be handed into class in an envelope on a Monday with your child's name and details of the meals required on the front.

St. Lawrence Primary School has a Healthy Eating Policy. A copy is available in the office. Children may only bring fruit or vegetables for break-time snacks. Children in KS1 are given free fruit every day. At lunch-times we ask that parents pack a healthy lunch box with no chocolate or sweets. The Food Standards Agency website has some very good ideas if you would like some ideas for healthy and nutritious packed lunches.
