THERE wasn’t any pink custard in sight when Solihull Mayor enjoyed lunch with Marston Green Infant Academy pupils.

To mark National School Meals Week (NSMW) 2023, the Mayor, Councillor Diana Holl-Allen headed to the school to find out exactly how tasty the menu is.

The annual celebration, hosted by the Local Authorities Caterers Association (LACA), aims to highlight the importance of healthy school meals to help children be at their best during the school day.

The Mayor said: “All the food looks delicious! There’s a good range of options to choose from and it’s great to see the pupils tucking in and enjoying lunch together in such a friendly environment.

“It was a pleasure to share such a lovely meal with the pupils.”

Solihull Catering Service is part of Solihull Council and provides school lunches for 70 primary schools across Solihull and Coventry including Marston Green Infant Academy.

With two seasonal menus a year, running a three-week rotation, pupils are offered a range of fresh, tasty and healthy meals, using locally sourced and high-quality ingredients.

Headteacher, Beverley Elliott, said: “Providing pupils with hot nutritious meals at lunch time is such an important part of the school day.

“School meals play an important role in the well-being of pupils and helps improve their concentration and energy levels, as well as making sure they get the right nutrition in the middle of the day.”
