Welcome to your guide to creating an inspiring school menu.
The eating out market has seen big changes over the past decade with exciting new brands appearing on the high street. Flavours from all over the world are featuring more frequently in our everyday diets, impacting the way families eat and changing children's expectations of school dinners. High street competition, combined with rising food and overhead costs makes increasing meal uptake in schools a real challenge!
So we've scratched our heads, talked to our customers and chefs, looked at school menus and studied eating out trends to develop some inspiring ideas that tap into that high street appeal and pull in the pupils!
We've included some fantastic grab and go recipes, hints and tips, and sound advice about portion sizes and government standards to help you on your way. What's more, take a look at our Caterer's Calendar for plenty of inspiration about upcoming events and themed days you could put on!
