Education caterer Pabulum has created a cookery book of pupils' favourite recipes.
Pabulum's business development team decided to compile the book following a positive response from children and parents to Pabulum's range of healthy option school meals across many schools on the Isle of Wight.
Kevin Phillips, operations manager for Pabulum on the Island, explained: "Both children and parents have been so enthusiastic about the school meals that we decided to compile a book of their favourite recipes - especially when several Mums told us that their children actually preferred our take on a number of traditional favourites to their home-cooked versions!"
The first edition of the Isle of Wight Primary Schools' Cook Book was launched after two pupils, whose pictures are featured in the book, were invited by printers Crossprint to start the presses.
The book will be available for sale through participating schools and proceeds will go to charity. Pabulum will also showcase it at several outside events over the next year as proof that nutritious, healthy school meals are the way to go.
"We're delighted with the book," added Phillips. "Not only does it truly reflect Pabulum's commitment to delivering the best school meals possible, but also demonstrates the children's enthusiasm for our meals - and they will always be the best ambassadors we could wish for in spreading the word that healthy is best."
