Over the past year we have been working hard to promote our healthy eating initiatives. From wonky veg workshops to hearty, seasonal menus, our catering department has been abuzz with exciting campaigns, ensuring our pupils stay happy and healthy all year round.

Following the success of the ‘Wasteful to Tasteful campaign, by our catering supplier Sodexo, we are excited to announce our next healthy eating initiative, ‘Powering Performance’. Going above and beyond the tried and tested catering model, from September, King's Schools will be delivering food that powers performance, not just food that feeds.

As part of this strategy, pupils will be able to try a range of plant-based dishes, renowned for carrying nutritional benefits. All dishes will be characterised under the following four categories: Focus (food to sharpen); Strength (food to fortify); Sustain (food to energise); and Recover (food to rejuvenate). With their presence and benefits clearly promoted, our pupils will be able to choose their meals to match the mental and physical demands of the school day.

To further enhance our healthy eating initiatives, we will be launching our very own cookery school. Through weekly timetabled sessions, pupils will learn basic food preparation skills such as fruit and veg prep and how to use kitchen utensils, as well as developing an understanding of how and where our food comes from. The state-of-the-art facilities will provide more scope for our cookery hobbies, and of course, the chance to run our very own cookery competitions.
