Does your child have an allergy?

Allergy Overview

Food Allergies or Intolerances

HCL has a rigorous process in place to provide a safe meal service to pupils with food allergies or intolerances, which we supply on behalf of your child’s school.

If your child has a food allergy or intolerance and meets the qualifying criteria, then we have a range of delicious and nutritious menus designed especially for your child’s medical requirement.

The on-line account system takes just minutes to create and complete and is really easy to use. You will need at hand:

  • Your child’s school details including class name
  • Medical evidence of your child’s medical requirements
  • Electronic Passport style photograph (which you will need to upload on to our system)

  • To apply, simply go to

    Once you have created your account you will be able to easily update the school and HCL with any changes to your child’s dietary needs in the future and will automatically receive new menus when they change (twice yearly).
