Children With Food Allergies

The 14 main food allergens are listed below; 

We understand that some children are allergic to specific foods (such as those in the categories above or others) and at Clowns we take this very seriously.

Parents are requested to notify us in writing if their child has a food allergy and when this information is received it is passed onto our kitchen team and the class teachers. The kitchen team strives to ensure that alternative meals are similar to the main set meal, just without the allergen(s).  For example, dairy based meals would be replaced with coconut or oat milk. Fish based meals would be replaced with legumes. These meals are prepared attentively by both our chefs who have Level 3 training in Food Allergens.

Menus are on a three week rotation and any meals containing items from the 14 main allergen groups are listed clearly. Please see our Sample Menus for an example of this.
