Healthy eating is encouraged in Elmgrove Primary School. A subsidised milk scheme operates within school. Due to a number of children with life threatening nut allergies, we have adopted a nut free policy in school.

Children can either bring a packed lunch to school or can avail from hot dinners supplied by the school dining centre. Dinner menus are supplied to the children on a monthly basis.
