Lunch at Chelsea Group

For the past fifteen years all snacks and meals at The Chelsea Group of Children have been organic and without

  • gluten
  • dairy
  • sugar
  • nuts

A persuasive amount of clinical evidence indicates the implication of food allergies, particularly to wheat and dairy products, in chronic health problems and learning difficulties.

Nutrition is regarded as critically important to a child’s performance and enjoyment of school. The food and the menus at Chelsea Group are unusual, prepared by our chef, onsite. It is not typical school food.

We want to expose the children to many different flavours and textures and develop a broader and more accepting palate. All students eat lunch at school and we can cater for most dietary restrictions.

The students and staff eat lunch together, family style. There are four key Therapy Lunch Groups, two of which are run by speech and language therapists focusing on communication around mealtimes and food. The other two are run by occupational therapists and focus on sensory issues, avoidance behaviour, fine motor skills, and life skills (ADLs).
