Special Diets

Meet our Paediatric Dietitian

Rebecca Weeks joined the City Catering Southampton menu-development team in June 2018, as our consultant Paediatric Dietitian.

Graduating from King’s College London in 2002, Rebecca has specialised in paediatric dietetics since 2003. Her focus for City Catering Southampton is on our allergy and special-diet menus, helping us shape the future of specialist school meals in Southampton.

Alongside her menu-development work, Rebecca’s knowledge and experience supports our strategic aim to promote nutrition – in partnership with our Member schools – delivering food education sessions that link into the national curriculum.

Rebecca completed an MSc in public health nutrition in 2012, and has been part of various clinical teams at Southampton NHS Trust; she currently leads the paediatric diabetes service.

Catering for your child's dietary requirements

City Catering can provide an adjusted menu for primary and special school pupils with medical allergies, who want to have a school meal. Please note that these special diets are only for pupils with a medical issue, therefore medical evidence of the allergy will be required before a menu can be adjusted.

How to request an adjusted menu:

  • Print and complete the food allergy referral form, to register with City Catering Southampton and please ensure the school is aware of the allergy.
  • Either post the form to City Catering Southampton, Second Floor, Latimer House,5-7 Cumberland Place, Southampton SO15 2BH, or scan and email it to admin@citycateringsouthampton.co.uk
  • We will then adjust the menu appropriately and send copies to all concerned
  • We may need to make an appointment with you to discuss any concerns.
