CHEF IAN AND HIS TEAM WIN GOLD!
Ripley Court School is very proud to have been awarded a Gold Level ‘Eat Out Eat Well’ Award by Trading Standards and Surrey County Council.
The aim of the ‘Eat Out Eat Well’ award is to encourage food businesses and caterers to provide healthier options to their customers and clients. This can be done with the use of healthier catering practices such as grilling instead of frying, the use of healthier ingredients such as substituting high fat products for their lower fat alternatives, decreasing the use of starchy carbohydrates and saturated fat, sugar and salt, and increasing fruit and vegetables. The level of award is based on a scoring system that takes into account the type of food on offer, cooking methods and healthy food promotion. The higher the score the higher the level of award and in order to obtain the gold award, members of the Ripley Court Catering Team gained specialist nutrition qualifications. We would like to say huge well done to Chef Ian and his wonderful Catering Team for this great achievement, and thank you for providing such delicious healthy food to the children, teachers and staff.
