Pupils in Wolverhampton schools are set to enjoy food with an international flavour next week.

Wolverhampton City Council's Catering Team is preparing to serve up a special menu in primary schools for its annual International Day celebrations on Friday (19 June, 2015).

Pupils will tuck into tasty Tex Mex chicken, cooked in barbecue sauce and served with a tortilla wrap, sweetcorn salad and jacket potato or wedges. Also on offer is a French cassoulet - a bean and mixed vegetable casserole served with garlic bread and salad.

For dessert, young people can choose between Brazilian Cuca De Banana - banana muffin - or an Italian chocolate crunch ice cream.

Councillor Claire Darke, Wolverhampton City Council's Cabinet member for Education, said: "The International themed days are always very popular in our schools, giving pupils the chance to try out cuisine which they may not have come across before, and also learning a little bit about other cultures."

Like all menus offered in Wolverhampton's schools, the International Day meals are nutritionally balanced. For more details about the regular menus, please visit Type=articles;Articleid=2945;Title=School menus;.

The Catering Team will be serving up an American themed menu on Friday 3 July to celebrate American Independence Day on 4 July.
