Meals offered to prisoners are nutritious, balanced, varied and in line with government recommendations on eating a healthy diet.
Last year, National Offender Management Service developed a model of cyclical four week menus, working closely withtheir food suppliers and nutritional technologists. As part of this process, a dietary and nutritional specialist was commissioned to review, analyse and make recommendations on the overall balance and nutritional content of the menus. These recommendations were incorporated and the menus are available to Prison Catering Teams.
Prisons are also encouraged to seek nutritional advice on any changes to menus to ensure they meet national standards.
