Restaurant guides students on how to get their five-a-day
Students will be able to easily make sure they are getting the five portions of fruit and vegetables they need every day thanks to a new system being run by the Academy’s restaurant.
From next week the restaurant will be displaying a selected menu from the day’s menus which includes the five portions of fruit and vegetables.
Students just need to follow this menu to ensure they get their five-a-day.
Restaurant manager Chris Lapsley said: “We are focussing on healthy eating and making it easier for the students to make sure they get the five portions of fruit and vegetables their bodies need each day to function properly.
“The new five-a-day menu will start on Monday, October 1, and it will be on the signs in the queues every morning.”
A sample five-a-day menu is:
Breakfast: Baked beans and tomatoes on toast (1 portion) and a piece of fresh fruit (1 portion)
Lunch: Cottage pie (1 portion), cauliflower and peas (1 portion) and a fresh fruit salad (1 portion)
