Essential Cuisine supports International School Meals Day – 11th March 2021

10th March 2021

For the last 9 years, International School Meals Day (ISMD) has been raising awareness about the importance of good nutrition for all children regardless of their circumstances. This year’s theme is “Eat for the health of it” encouraging caterers, school representatives, on site staff and parents to focus on the connection between well-balanced meals and the health, wellbeing and learning of pupils.

With the education sector, amongst others, dealing with the daily challenges of the COVID pandemic, this campaign will also work to raise awareness of the quality of school meal programmes in terms of nutrition, together with hunger and poverty issues.

With hot meals being re-introduced onto school menus across the UK, we believe this will have endless benefits to a child’s health, attainment and development. We are here to support school caterers with our range of time and cost saving stocks and sauce bases, along with lots of healthy menu inspiration for all sorts of dietary requirements.

We’ve listed some of our go-to healthy recipes below, all approved by Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist, Dr Sarah Schenker – perfect for your Spring/ Summer menu.
