Essential Cuisine supports LACA’s walk to school campaign

28 Apr 2021
Stocks and sauces supplier Essential Cuisine has released ten recipes in support of LACA’s walk to school week to encourage children to get active during the summer term.

School caterers are providing menus emphasising the link between food and the energy it provides to walk to and from school. Stickers and activities on road safety can be used during lunchtime or by schools during lesson times.

Essential Cuisine has selected ten high energy recipes that have been approved by nutritionist and registered dietician Dr Sarah Schenker. Each recipe contains an ingredients list, method and a picture of the dish should look like.

The ten recipes include:

  • Turkey, ham, leek and mushroom pie
  • South Indian crab cakes
  • Turkey chilli con carne
  • Chicken and chorizo paella
  • Cheese and onion pasties
  • Essential veggie balti
  • Gluten free tuna pasta bake
  • Beetroot and halloumi sliders
  • Vegan burritos
  • Baguette pizzas

LACA, the school food people, aim to ensure that the investment in school meals is matched by the highest standards of professionalism in education catering.
