Every student at the British College of Gavá receives a fresh nutritious meal each lunchtime prepared by the expert staff in an extensive kitchen.  The principles behind school lunches at BCG are as follows: 

 

  • • All food is cooked freshly onsite in the kitchen at the school; no precooked food prepared at a central kitchen and warmed up
  • • All products are natural and strictly no ‘fast food’ is served; no chips, hotdogs or chicken nuggets
  • • Menus are designed in order to achieve an equilibrium; enough carbohydrate to provide energy for the afternoon, protein, fibre, a limited amount of fat, and a sufficient amount/range of vitamins and minerals

 

Students with special dietary requirements are well-catered for be it gluten-free, lactose-free, or any other medically dictated condition.  

Lunchtimes are closely supervised by a team of BCG staff members who know the students well; the school does not outsource supervision of lunchtimes with use of external monitors.  EYFS and Primary students are encouraged to try all elements of their meal and eat a sufficient amount to get through the afternoon.  Teachers of EYFS children record how much each child has eaten in their ‘home-school communication book’.
