Online portal for information about primary school meals

School Meals launch online allergen and nutritional portal for primary schools

A new online resource has been launched by Aberdeenshire Council’s School Meals Service, which will help with making healthy meal choices displaying allergen and nutritional content of primary school meals.

The Our Shire Menus portal is linked to a nutritional analysis programme that ensures meals meet statutory nutritional standards, meaning they are nutritious as well as delicious. It is particularly helpful for pupils with special dietary needs including allergies and Type-1 Diabetes.

Aberdeenshire Council’s Catering Service Manager Liz Powell said

This is a great digital resource for parents and carers to assist them with choosing school meals their children enjoy. The portal is yet another example of how we are using digital technology giving everyone flexibility as well as offering great customer service.

Vincent Docherty, Aberdeenshire Council’s Head of Education, added

Our School Meals Service is highly innovative by offering fantastic fresh ingredients often local to Aberdeenshire, delicious cooking to suit a range of dietary requirements and embracing technology to make it easy to choose favourite meals as well as checking if meals meet health and wellbeing needs.
