What we do

Serving meals with the right nutritional balance boosts children’s development, behaviour and ability to learn. Our eats development chef creates two exciting menus per academic term, taking into account freshness, seasonality of ingredients, tastes, and trends. Reducing sugar and fat is a priority, as is ensuring ingredients are ethically sourced from local suppliers with the highest standards. Increasing fruit and vegetable intake is another commitment, and we often use natural sweetness (eg from parsnips and beetroots) in our delicious desserts. We have been nationally recognised at the Cost Sector Catering Awards with short listings in the Innovation and Education categories for our ‘Pick & Mix’ offer, allowing children to create a bag or box suiting their individual tastes.

Our food

Our award-winning development chef works to the School Food Standards and Food for Life guidelines to hand-craft menus that are nutritious and tasty. Our experienced, dedicated catering teams then prepare and cook these meals knowing that your children will love them.

Here at eats, we are proud to have pledged our commitment to the Peas Please initiative. We have pledged to develop our menus to ensure that a minimum of six varieties of vegetables and salads are available each week in children’s meal experiences.
