Back to School – OPERATING IN A COVID-19 WORLD

It is always a challenge to feed children nutritious and tasty meals that they will actually eat while adhering to the School Food Standards, working to tight budget constraints and retaining good staff in the kitchen. However, the additional complexities of implementing social distancing measures and the concerns of anxious parents and children can leave school caterers feeling overwhelmed.

Over the last few months we have listened to school caterers across the UK and Ireland, learning from their experiences earlier in the year and combining the findings with expert advice from the government sector associations and consulting groups to bring our education sector readers a reopening guide. From the advice focused around reopening your kitchen to the inspiration for designing menus to meet nutritional standards as well as new dining formats, we hope this guide helps to ease your way back into operation.

The guide includes..

• PREPARATION CHECKLISTS • PARENT AND PUPIL FOCUSED COMMUNICATION GUIDANCE • MENU PLANNING ADVICE • RECIPE INSPIRATION COVERING FAMILIAR FAVOURITES – STREET FOOD – PLANT POWER – DREAMY DESSERTS – BREAKFAST – BREAKTIME SNACKS
