Welsh Cake and a Milk Drink

Why we chose this dish

Our Pupils’ Choice

“Ooooooh!” (Collective expression of pleasure from the School Council in Garnteg)

“Because I am Welsh at heart” James, Garnteg

“I like how there are raisins all around it and it is sweet” Ffion, Garnteg

Our Dietitian’s Choice

“With all white flour in the UK fortified with iron, and dried fruit also being a good natural source of iron, this traditional Welsh option, when served with a glass of milk for calcium is one of our top choices. Whilst dried fruit should be avoided as a between-meal snack (due to natural concentrated sugars sticking to teeth), it is a great choice as an additional to a main meal or dessert.”
