Healthy School Meals and Snacks
Oasis Academy Hobmoor operates a healthy eating policy for all students.
At lunchtime, we encourage students to have an Academy meal. These are prepared fresh on site by our Sodexo catering team; all meals are nutritionally balanced and always offer a choice, catering team offer a vegetarian and Halal option.
We have our own allotments here at Hobmoor and our gardening team regular harvest home grown vegetables such as potatoes, carrots, beans, fresh herbs and many more. Our catering team, then prepares all our fresh on site-grown produce. Giving children a real farm to plate experience.
Weekly menus are available from the Academy office and will be displayed on the Academy Newsletter.
Alternatively, students may bring a packed lunch. Packed lunches should be healthy and nutritionally balanced, in line with our healthy eating policy.
Please note that students are not allowed to bring sweets or fizzy drinks into the Academy at any time in line with the healthy eating policy. Students should bring plain water to drink during the day in labelled bottles - these should be taken home and refilled each day.
The school food standards are intended to help children develop healthy eating habits and ensure that they get the energy and nutrition they need across the whole school day. It is just as important to cook food that looks good and tastes delicious; to talk to children about what is on offer and recommend dishes; to reduce queuing; and to serve the food in a pleasant environment where they can eat with their friends. As a general principle, it is important to provide a wide range of foods across the week. Variety is key – whether it is different fruits, vegetables, grains, pulses or types of meat and fish. Children love to hear the stories behind their food.
