School meals at Belmont are provided by Pabulum.
Pabulum state their vision for school meals as follows:
To be at the forefront of improving the next generation’s health and well-being, by shaping the food culture in education that inspires a passion and love of fresh food – without compromise.
The vast majority of the food we serve our children is freshly prepared on site as it's through a balanced diet and healthy food choices that children maintain higher classroom concentration levels. 94% of our food is freshly prepared in Belmont Junior School’s kitchen and 75% of the food is British and locally sourced.
At Belmont Junior School we have a dedicated Pabulum team led by Shana our Chef Manager.
