Notice from our School’s Caterers – Radish
Here at Radish, we believe that food is a great way to bring everyone together. We want to share our love of good, real food so we actively engage with all children at the school through our interactive workshops, healthy eating assemblies and, of course, serving them a delicious and nutritious lunch every day.
We always meet the Government food-based standard for our school lunches: as a minimum, every day we provide the children with two hot choices, at least one vegetarian option, homemade dessert, freshly baked bread, salad bar, yoghurt and fresh fruit.
All of our meals are freshly prepared on-site by our talented chefs to ensure there are no undesirable additives. We pack many of our dishes full of hidden veggies so that the children increase their intake without even realising. Our Nutritionist, Sarah, works on every menu we create for the school which is rotated every term to include the best local fruit and vegetables that are in season. See this term’s menu link below.
Our exceptional food, service and ethical approach have been recognised within the catering industry and beyond, including Food for Life, Red Tractor Farm Assured Food Standards Scheme, Marine Stewardship Council, Free Range Eggs and British Meat Processors Association.
We want the pupils to understand nutrition and where food comes from whilst experimenting with their own creations - so we introduce them to our popular Herby and Big Chef Little Chef concepts, giving them fun activities and friendly characters to learn from. See what we have been up to recently at the school by clicking the link below.
We love to meet with parents, guardians and carers of the school so we run evening presentations and taster sessions which are a great way for you to find out what we are all about. For more information about our presentations and taster sessions, please contact your school.
