Parent Guide

Can PGL cater for special diets?

At PGL centres, we are able to deliver catering provision for many dietary requirements as specified by culture, religion and medical concerns, but we do not cater for weight management programmes or “faddy” diets. We regularly provide meals for a wide variety of needs including coeliac, diabetic, food allergies and vegetarian/vegan. We can arrange for our chefs to contact parents directly to discuss any concerns they may have and we may occasionally ask parents to provide some items that are hard to get hold of locally, particularly overseas. While we will do our best to cater for special diets, it may not always be possible to meet all complex requirements.

Information relating to complex dietary requirements should be provided at the time of booking. Groups must state any individual dietary requirements on final forms/names list. We may not be able to make arrangements at short notice.

Take a look at our sample menus:

There are freshly-prepared hot or cold options available at every mealtime and a self-service salad bar for children to help themselves to as much salad as they like at lunch and dinner. Homemade soup is available most days and there is plenty of bread and fresh fruit available, as well as hot and cold drinks.

Fussy Eaters
We know that some children are very particular about what they eat and if the menu doesn't suit, we can provide alternatives to ensure no-one leaves the dining room hungry. We do often find, however, that children are more likely to try new things at PGL that they wouldn't normally eat at home - it's all part of the PGL experience!
