At The British School of Barcelona we are proud to provide good value wholesome meals using quality ingredients carefully sourced.
Each campus -Castelldefels and Sitges- has its own kitchen, where school meals and afternoon snacks are prepared by qualified staff from Cuina Gestió, a Catalan food company founded in 2001 who specialize in the educational and health sectors.
All our meals and snacks are all checked against nutritional standards, to help students have a healthy, balanced diet and ensure that they get the energy and nutrition they need across the whole school day.
We encourage children to develop healthy eating habits by serving them hot and cold homemade delicious food in a pleasant environment where they can eat with their friends.
School lunch is compulsory in Early Years and Primary.
Students in Secondary and the Sixth Form can bring their own packed lunch. They also have the option of a sandwich menu for lunch.
Diverse eating preferences
We cater for the wide variety of dietary requirements of our international community of students. We offer a range of different meat menus (whether specifically no beef or no pork), a pescatarian menu and also vegetarian menus.
We take care to ensure that all menus are well planned so that they meet our students’ nutritional needs.
Food allergies and intolerances
Food allergies or intolerances are taken seriously. We work very closely with parents to ensure we provide the correct and balanced diet for children with food allergies or intolerances, as we believe that it is important that these children enjoy eating school food with their classmates. Children with food allergies or intolerances are provided with individualised monthly menus.
Every month a registered dietician from Cuina Gestió plans the school menus based on seasonal, fresh, sustainable and locally-sourced ingredients, such as organic vegetables and free range poultry. This ensures that the food provided to students is nourishing and of high quality.
