Pupils try out taste of world foods

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Bitter Dispute -

Young­sters from Barged­die and St Kevin’s pri­maries helped to launch this term’s school meal menu – with an in­ter­na­tional flavour.

They took part in a spe­cial tast­ing ses­sion to sam­ple the new“food ex­plorer”range.

Pri­mary pupils are be­ing chal­lenged to try dishes in­clud­ing savoury rice with tor­tilla tri­an­gles, lamb kofta with flat­bread and tzatziki, and en­chi­ladas with chopped cherry toma­toes.

They can col­lect stamps for choos­ing one of the new of­fer­ings from around the world, with those earn­ing eight stamps be­ing en­tered into a prize draw with a skate­board on of­fer to a win­ner at each North La­nark­shire school.

Busi­ness man­ager Anne Han­lon said:“We’re al­ways look­ing for new ways to in­crease fruit and veg­eta­bles in our school menus, and of­fer foods from around the world.

“Our home­made tomato sauce for pasta and piz­zas in­cludes three ex­tra veg­eta­bles; and our new muf­fin recipes con­tain one of five dif­fer­ent fruit or veg­eta­bles.”

The“Food Ex­plorer”project, spon­sored by Brakes, runs un­til Novem­ber 30.
