The Crunch: Crafting Healthy School Meals

26th September 2022

With the kids now back in the swing of being back at school, it’s important to ensure that they’re well fuelled for a day full of learning! Governments throughout the UK have set school food standards to ensure that kids are getting the nutrition and energy they need for a whole school day with delicious and nutritious school meals. We know no one wants to serve an awful school lunch (or anything they themselves wouldn’t eat!), so we are here to help!

As the general standard, it’s super important to offer a range of foods across the school week, and this is even better with fresh, sustainable, and locally sourced ingredients. This is also a great opportunity to educate students on what they’re eating, what they should try to incorporate into their diet and why it’s important to have a healthy, balanced diet. This should consist of:

As a wholesale supplier of baked goods, we take these standards seriously and include them within our product range. We create and supply great food specifically for the education sector that is both delicious and nutritious which makes for fantastic school meals:
