School Lunch

The British School of Bucharest Lunch

We provide our nutritious lunch service in house. Our aim is to ensure we offer a high-quality complete meal, that is appealing and healthy, made from fresh foods cooked on our premises.

Our approach to our school lunch service is ‘healthy eating’ and we design our menu to meet the principles of a balanced diet.

Additionally, all pupils are provided with a nutritious snack at the morning break at no extra charge.

Pre-Nursery, Nursery and Reception children are provided with lunch at no extra charge.

Pre-Nursery, Nursery and Reception, Year 1 & 2 children receive the main menu adapted for young children.

Alternatively, a nutritious lunch can be sent from home.

Parents can be assured that the food provided through our school lunch service meets the highest standards. These are intended to help children develop healthy eating habits and ensure that they get the energy and nutrition they need across the whole school day. The School lunch is an additional service that can be provided by the school for supplementary costs.

Fresh and tasty ingredients

Most ingredients used in our kitchen, such as meat, fish, dairy products, fruit and vegetables, are purchased directly from local authorised manufacturers or processors, to ensure that we always provide fresh and non-preserved products. We cook all dishes fresh in our kitchen and we don’t use pre-cooked, canned goods or food additives (colourings, sweeteners, flavour enhancers). All the desserts are prepared in house following classic recipes, without using pre-mixes and sweeteners, and using only sugar, honey, agave and maple syrup. For chocolate desserts, we use only dark chocolate.

The British School of Bucharest lunch menu includes a wide range of salads (10-12 types), four main course choices of which one is fish (Norwegian salmon or butterfish) and one vegetarian option, two types of soup (one with meat, one with vegetables) and three types of desserts, of which two are made with fresh fruits.
