I went to Cricket Green School this morning to meet Catherine Marsh, the deputy head and David Tchilingirian, Merton's nutritionist to discuss next terms menus in the primary schools. We 've suggested a few tweaks. One of the issues that came up was the veggie options. Do you always make the dishes equivalent? ie serve meat lasagne on the same day as vegetable lasagne - or does this lead to the kids who don't like lasagne refusing to eat anything? Need to give this some thought.
On a brighter note, it was lovely to see Cricket Green School. The school has such a calm, tranquil yet purposeful atmosphere. I really got the sense that the children were all treated as individuals and cared for with warmth and affection.
We were taken to meet the cooks and it was clear that they are an important part of the school staff. Catherine is clearly doing a great job!
