The food children eat in school is very important for their education. Not only does a well-balanced diet help with general health but establishing healthy eating habits at a young age can give them knowledge for the future. We understand primary school children and their likes and dislikes so we tailor our menus to encourage maximum uptake.
Healthy eating is at the very heart of our approach to food. We wholeheartedly encourage balanced eating patterns within our schools and investment in training and our policy of purchasing seasonal produce enables us to deliver exceptional value.
We have implemented our own Fresh Food Policy throughout our business which sets out our expectations and minimum requirements to meet the daily nutritional needs of the students and staff for whom we cater. We are proud to have gained professional recognition for the success of our Fresh Food Policy, including the Soil Association’s Food For Life Served Here at both “Silver” &”Gold” levels and Compassion in World Farming’s “Good Egg” Award.
You could say that food fuels the brain. Eating a well balanced diet helps with physical fitness and general good health, both in body and mind. A well balanced diet means getting the right nutrients your body needs to be in tip top condition – protein helps with repair and growth, carbohydrates and healthy fats provide you with energy, water replaces lost fluids and fibre and the right vitamins support healthy body maintenance. By getting into the habit of eating healthily, we can avoid the risk of serious health problems for the future.
