Examples of menus, photographs and descriptions of food our children eat at English schools.

Ejemplos de menús, fotografías y descripciones de comidas de colegios españoles. De esta manera los participantes españoles pueden participar más facilmente. Nos gustaría hacer esta sección en español. Cada profesor y alumno será así capaz de navegar y contribuir en su propia lengua. Por favor, siéntanse libres de corregir la ortografía o la gramática y animen a sus colegas y alumnos a participar en este portal.

This example of Spanish school dinners has been sent by María José Sierras. It is interesting to note the nutritional breakdown of each meal is included as well as a suggestion for parents for what could be served for dinner each night.

Those who are interested in dinner, might also be interested in breakfast?
