Council publishes video to celebrate Monmouthshire’s new delicious school menu
Monmouthshire County Council has released a video promoting its new primary schools meal menu and celebrating all that’s great about the food served to the county’s young students.
The video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTQldIIiKjw –highlights how the new menu launched during National Schools Meals Week on November 2nd accentuates fresh ingredients and special dietary needs while meeting government nutritional guidelines.
It follows another video issued by the council on October 21st featuring a flash mob of Monmouthshire primary pupils: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W59yLPtB67Q. The light-hearted approach with children performing a dance to the early sixties hit “Monster Mash” illustrates the benefits of nutritious and delicious food.
Councillor Phil Murphy, Monmouthshire’s cabinet member with responsibility for school meals said: "School meals are delicious, nutritious and fantastic value. Parents leading busy lifestyles can be assured that today's school meals are far from being convenience food – they're genuinely good for your children's health, education and well-being and it would be difficult to find a better deal elsewhere.”
A typical meal on the council’s autumn/winter menu will feature such traditional delights as shepherd’s pie, roast pork or an appetising casserole as well as modern dishes like barbecued chicken, pizza and meatballs. For the less adventurous, jacket potatoes with various fillings and a salad bar will be available each day. Vegetarian and special diets are also catered for and fresh fruit and yogurt will feature daily.
Information on the new menu is featured on the council’s website. Residents can also log onto the council’s Facebook and Twitter pages to find out more.
