Fruit jelly, shortbread biscuit and milk drink

Fruit jelly and a shortbread biscuit with a milk drink

Why we chose this dish

Our Pupils’ Choice

"I like fruit and I love jelly too – it is two of my favourite things mixed together" Ffion, Garnteg

"The jelly is wobbly even with the fruit in it and I absolutely love the jelly" James, Garnteg

Our Dietitian’s Choice

"Whilst a firm favourite with the children (and our dietitian!), we are more than aware that there is minimal nutrition in jelly. So we have upgraded this choice by adding a child’s portion of fruit cocktail to our jelly portions, so contributing to one of your child’s 5 a day. The addition of the biscuit increases the carb content of this dessert, providing energy to fuel the afternoon school session, and the glass of milk accompaniment makes a substantial contribution to the calcium content of this dessert."
