New starter parents from Bichington CE Primary School in Kent more
Principals Catering have produced a new video to explain how we work with suppliers and schools to produce fresh, high-quality, school meals.
Whatever the season our aim is to provide, nourishing, nutritional meals ensuring that they are tasty and attractive to children.
Each school will have a specific timetable but you can use the calendar from Kent County Council as a guide to term times and holidays.
Delivering nutritional value
Principals use a software programme, called CRISp to calculate the nutritional value of the raw ingredients used in our dishes. We can analyse the value of each menu, allowing us to phase in new
dishes easily, whilst maintaining the nutritional balance. Menus include all kinds of international, regional and ethnic choices, without forgetting, of course, an extensive range of traditional favourites.
Fresh is best
Principals purchase only top quality meat, fruit, fish and vegetables, from the local area.
The best ingredients in the world still need skillful cooking to become an appetising meal. At Principals, our management team work hard to reflect each schools food requirements. Each catering
team is trained to consistently produce and present the agreed menus. We also have several senior chefs who will continually visit to help develop and ensure the best practice is maintained.
