Education Sector

In this area we recognise the need for meals that are suitable for children and the demands of their diets. When children eat well they achieve well. Good food gives them the tools to thrive and learn.

We help children develop good healthy eating habits that they will take into adulthood.

Children need high calorie meals for energy as well as the essential vitamins and minerals to keep their immune systems fully functional and brains alert to learn. Our meals and options provide just this. Optimum Carbohydrates keep them full up for longer – reducing rumbling tums in the classroom.

A Healthy Food Company child is a child that eats a healthy, balanced and nutritional diet.

We work closely with the Food 4 Life campaign and the School Food Plan to make sure that the meals and meal options we provide are just what schools and nurseries are looking for.

We fully cater for those children with allergies, food intolerance and cultural needs.

We have worked with Kate Neilson, our paediatric dietitian, to develop a three week menu that we can provide to schools and nurseries. Every meal is fully analysed twice. Firstly by our specialist software and then in the good old fashioned way by Kate Nelson working with a set of scales and the basic nutrition breakdown of every ingredient in our dishes to ensure they are as nutritious as possible without error.

Short of staff to cook?

We provide fully finished meals, so you won’t need additional staff to prepare the food. Our primary schools range is designed to allow you to comfortably meet the increase in demand with just your existing staff.

Meeting the challenge of universal infant free school meals

We have a full range for younger school children, prompted by the introduction of Universal Infant Free School Meals. Meals in this range require a minimal preparation so they’re ideal for schools where space is tight or where you’re short of staff. All our meals are designed to meet the exacting standards of school catering: wholesome balanced meals that kids love, quick and easy to prepare and serve, and which fit the budget.

Short of service?

Our mobile serving stations come in different sizes, and can be used counter-top or free-standing with their own base. Give us a call so we can find the right solution for your school.

No kitchen or a small kitchen? Queuing time? Not enough staff? Struggling to meet nutrition levels?

We have packed our meals so that they can be cooked using various kitchen appliances such as hobs, microwaves and ovens. We cater for all settings.

We work with a company that can supply trolleys in all sizes for settings with no kitchens. These trolleys can cook the food as well as keep it warm and can be used for as serving stations.

We have made it possible for everyone to be able to supply a lunch or dinner. We have also had schools and nurseries purchase a trolley to use alongside their kitchen to allow for in the increased demand for school meals to shorten queues.

We can provide full meals as well as components, there will be no need to increase staff when you are using our meals we have done all the hard work for you no preparation needed! You can manage the increase in demand with your existing team.

Each meal that we supply meets and exceeds government guidelines for children, the elderly and adults nutrition. You do not need to worry about conforming to the standard’s set as we have ensured that by using our meals you are are providing the healthiest meal possible.
