Special Diets

The HC3S standard menu is completely nut free so there is no need to register this allergy. All other allergies must be registered and medical evidence provided (we cannot feed your child without an HC300 special diet form). HC3S can cater for dairy, soya, wheat, gluten and egg free meals. For more information call 023 8062 7730 or visit the HC3S website. Special diet menus are as close to the standard menu as possible to avoid children being ‘different’.
