Carbohydrate counting

Primary schools

At this time we do not have detailed information available about the carbohydrate content of meals provided by schools in Oxfordshire.

Some schools are happy to weigh set portions of foods to ensure consistency in carbohydrate content.

We would suggest using similar meals in Carbs and Cals - www.carbsandcals.com - to guide calculation of the carbohydrate values.

Secondary schools

It can be tricky to work out the carbohydrate content of lunches provided at secondary schools, especially in the busy canteen when you are in a rush to join your friends.

Some schools are able to provide carbohydrate content of their foods or will have labels on packs of things that you buy.

You could use an app, like Carbs and Cals, on your phone - www.carbsandcals.com

Alternatively print out the list below, which gives you an average carb count of the types of foods you might buy (based on average portions in a number of different secondary schools in Oxford).
