The online workshop will demonstrate how to prepare simple, inexpensive, nutritionally balanced and most importantly, tasty, plant-based recipes that ‘children will love’. School Plates is the flagship programme of ProVeg UK delivering menu change in UK schools to improve the health of children and the planet.
ProVeg is aiming to create a world where everyone chooses 'delicious and healthy food that is good for all humans, animals, and the planet'. ProVeg International is a food awareness organisation with the mission to reduce the global consumption of animals by 50% by 2040.
Lisa Marley, programme co-ordinator & chef trainer at ProVeg, said: "We also wanted to let you know about the launch of our School Plates Awards. There is no cost to enter, and the consultation and the awards themselves are also free. Each time they change, you are invited to send in your menus for scoring, to work towards completing a checklist of actions towards bronze, silver and gold School Plates Awards.
“Two annual School Plates Champions will be announced at the end of the year, with a category for caterers subject to national school nutrition standards, and a separate category for those who are outside of these guidelines. This is our way of rewarding you for the positive steps you are taking to make menus healthier for children and our planet.”
