If your child requires a special diet provision as a consequence of allergies or intolerance, you should download and complete the Medical Diet Request Form and return it as per the instructions. It is vital that you provide medical evidence of allergies/intolerances. It can take up to three weeks to process your special diet application and prepare a specific menu.

Chartwells Food Super Heroes

Chosen by over 25,000 Chartwells children – our Food Super Heroes are there to educate, excite and delight students every lunch time. Inspired by the high street, they're great for getting across nutrition messages at an early age through each character’s special powers. We’d like the characters to become well known to you too, so when your child mentions Sadie the Sweetcorn you’ll know exactly who they’re talking about!

Food Super Heroes are a cast of colourful characters who really come to life at lunchtime - It’s all part of feeding both your children and their imaginations.

Doc - The Kiwi knows just what the team needs to keep on top of its game. She helps our heroes stay healthy by boosting their immune systems and preventing illness.

Boss - The leader of the team, Boss the Banana’s fibre helps keep everything running smoothly. When our team gets stuck, the Boss is always around to get things moving again.

Brains - Packed full of iron to help growing minds work better, Brains the Broccoli is always on the ball to hatch perfect plans for the team.

The Pasta Pack - They are an unruly bunch, each with their own unique personality. Their wholegrain powers make them passionate with strong hearts, and they’ll stop at nothing to defend the team.

Sadie - Sadie’s an eager explorer who travels the world and loves to share stories of her exciting adventures. Sweetcorn is full of good stuff and can help you feel fuller for longer - which means less time snacking on bad stuff and more time to enjoy good stuff like exploring!
