Do you provide food for pupils in primary, secondary, higher and further education? See how Kafoodle can help control budgets, manage allergen compliance and create a safer eating environment providing balanced and nutritious meals.

Feeding students from nursery to university

Commercial kitchens in educational establishments need tools that make their obligations safer and easier, such as creating and managing multiple menus; communicating accurate allergen information to students, their parents and guardians; and delivering consistency and efficiency across sites.

Create nutritious menus

51% of primary school children don’t hit their five portions of fruit and veg a day

Stay allergy compliant

5-8% of children have a proven food allergy, with hospitalisations due to allergic reactions increasing by 700% since 1990

Manage communications

Communicate menu information efficiently and effectively with pupils, parents and guardians

Remove the stigma surrounding students with allergies and special diets and encourage a feeling of safety, control and ownership

We chose Kafoodle for various reasons; the efficient and easy way it shows up allergens as well as the recipe bank were two vital points for us as a business. The transparency it provides us with when designing recipes and menus is second to none.
