School lunches at Milton Road with Gastro

Lunches at school


Lunchtime Company is the catering company chosen by the school to provide school lunches to our students. They are a Cambridge based school catering company whose purpose is to make the lunchtime meal at Milton Road Primary School the highlight of the day for everyone.


In the autumn term they gave our lunch menus a new ‘Gastro’ makeover. The revamped menus are available below.  The revamp was launched in school with new posters to encourage children to eat their lunches and a sticker system introduced for the younger children.


Packed lunches from home

Parents should encourage their children to eat a healthy packed lunch. As there are currently children in school with severe nut allergies, parents’ co-operation in not including peanut butter or packets of nuts would be appreciated. Fizzy drinks, sweets and chocolate are not permitted. Lunch boxes should be clearly labelled with the child’s name and class.

Snacks and Water

As a healthy mid-morning snack, children may bring fruit (fresh or dried) or raw vegetables. Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 pupils are provided - free of charge - with a portion of fruit or vegetable each day. For younger children, where parents wish to provide the mid-morning snack themselves, it is recommended that it is prepared for easy eating and stored in a small plastic container.

Children are encouraged to drink water throughout the day. Drinking water is available on tap in every classroom. It is recommended that every child brings in an individual, labelled water bottle.

Parents are asked not to send in cakes or sweets to celebrate birthdays
