Menus and food at PGL centres

Teacher Guide

Healthy, Tasty and Nutritious

The meals we provide at our centres offer a wide range of tasty and nutritious dishes which are attractive to children’s palates. To assist young people in selecting a balanced meal we serve generous portions of fruit, vegetables and salad with plenty of carbohydrate for energy.

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 at lunch and dinner times and there is always plenty of bread and fresh fruit available, as well as hot and cold drinks.

Allergies, Intolerances and 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. 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 their final forms/names list. We may not be able to make arrangements at short notice.

Nut policy

To ensure our guests have a safe and enjoyable experience, we ask that Party Leaders supply information relating to nut allergies as early as possible before travel.

And finally...

It is a matter of pride and principle that no child leaves a PGL dining room hungry!

We always welcome your comments and would be delighted to discuss any aspect of our catering with you. If you have any comments, please let us know as soon as you can, whilst you are on centre, so we can adapt to your requirements.
