The Pabulum dining experience gives every child time to enjoy our fresh food offer, whilst encouraging children to try delicious new dishes and rewarding them with a

Pabulum goes beyond the fresh food dining experience; our initiatives engage and inspire to help develop a deeper appreciation of food through parents evenings,

playground taster sessions, food assemblies and cookery demonstrations.

Pabulum Menu - Autumn 2019 2020 proposed Menu

Our proposed new menus (see below) feature some positive changes as part of our Pabulum food evolution, which include:


•A daily main meal suitable for plant-based / vegan dining.  Plant-based dining currently has a really loud voice; our new dishes include roasted vegetable and houmous pitta pizza, tofu and rice noodle stir fry, homemade crispy vegetable nuggets, and a mildly spiced 5 bean quesadilla.


Providing a vegan option every day has a positive impact on the environment, reflects current food trends and allows more choice for pupils with dairy or egg allergies.


•We are introducing homemade tomato ketchup, a simple recipe using naturally sweet tomatoes and vegetables to achieve a 40% reduction in sugar content. This will also reduce the use of single use plastics, delivering another positive impact on the environment.


•Our salad bar is completely allergen free featuring simple, wholesome and nutritious salads.


•Our desserts include more fruits, vegetables and less free sugars. We will still be making our delicious unsweetened yoghurt, serving it with freshly made fruit purees and compotes.


Eat well,


The Pabulum Team
