Healthy Eating at OA Brislington
At lunchtime we encourage students to have an Academy meal. All of the food we serve complies with current government guidelines and we follow National Nutritional Food Standards. Meals are cooked on site and are nutritionally balanced. We always offer a choice including vegetarian.
The Academy canteen offers a great selection of meals all purchasable from a very low price (see below). Alternatively students may bring a packed lunch. We ask parents and carers providing packed lunches to choose healthy options with a balanced selection of food including fruit and vegetables, juice and/or water. These will help your child to stay healthy and to concentrate in lessons. Students are encouraged to bring a water bottle to school each day which can be refilled at our fountains.
We are pleased to introduce you to Aspens who specialise in providing catering for schools and are passionate about serving fresh, high quality and locally sourced food. Aspens use British, Red Tractor Farm Assured meat, fish from sustainable sources, free range eggs, locally sourced fruit and vegetables and follow the School Food Standards. The World Kitchen provides traditional hot meals for a sociable sit down lunch. The Cold Deli offers grab and go sandwiches, wraps and more for students on the move and the Hot Deli offers 'hot' food, again for students on the move! Aspens provide a variety of globally inspired street food concepts, which change regularly so lunchtime is always fresh and exciting.
