Sodexo: Five Foodie Days Menu
At Schools by Sodexo, we are proud of the food we serve at your child’s school. We take health and wellbeing seriously: we know that good nutrition is vital in helping your child reach their potential. We also know that school meals must appeal to young people. That’s why our Five Foodie Days menu has been designed specifically for, and in consultation with, primary school-aged children across the UK. It offers a modern, fresh approach to school food by introducing five theme days:
1. Planet Earth Day: offering plant-based foods to meet the growing interest in eating more non-meat dishes to be kinder to planet earth.
2. Street Food Day: offering dishes inspired by high-street trends, because pupils tell us they want a more exciting and grown-up menu.
3. World Food Day: exploring foods from a different country, because pupils tell us they like to try new flavours from around the world.
4. Originals Day: offering classic and familiar dishes, because pupils tell us they still love their familiar and favourite foods such as roast meals and curries.
5. Favourite Friday: offering a range of popular dishes such as fish and chips.
