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 is also a mix of freshly-prepared hot or cold meals at various mealtimes throughout the week, as well and a self-service salad bar for children to help themselves to as much salad as they like at lunch and dinner. 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. 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 such as organic-only diets or weight management programmes.

We understand that some guests may need to measure and control their carbohydrate intake. We kindly ask those guests to choose their meals in advance, from our sample menu (above), and inform the Party Leader of the exact quantities required for each dish. The Party Leader can then provide this information to our customer services team (at least one week before travel), who can then liaise with our catering team and they will be very happy to support.

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.

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.
