Smarter school meal management

The safety of your pupils is a number one priority. Allergy warnings can be stored against relevant pupils in the cloud to ensure that they are adhered to at lunchtimes. If a pupil makes a meal choice that conflicts with an allergy, staff will be alerted immediately.

Free school meal eligibility is stored against the relevant pupils within the system, ensuring a simple lunchtime ‘transaction’ process for both staff and pupils.

Our interactive whiteboard functionality doubles up as an effective e-registration tool, marking your pupils as present once they have submitted their meal choices for the day.
