Our Food

Primary Schools

Our primary schools range and menu

Primary schools have been serving our Wallace & Gromit pasta for years, but now we have a full range of wholesome food for younger school children, prompted by the introduction of Universal Infant Free School Meals.

Our range includes favourites such as mild chicken tikka, meatball sauce and beef bolognese.

Meals in this range need minimal preparation so they’re ideal for schools where catering staff are short of time or where catering facilities are limited.

All our meals are designed to meet the exacting standards of school catering; wholesome balanced meals full of nutritional goodness that children love, are quick and easy to prepare and serve, and which fit the budget.

We’ve run taste tests to make sure that these meals really work, and they do.

As you’d expect from Pasta King, all our primary school meals are nutritionally compliant. They’re made with no artificial colouring or flavourings, keeping salt, sugar and fat to a minimum, and of course are totally delicious. The range includes a whole wheat pasta option and all of the meat is British farm-assured. You can view the nutritional information of our primary school range of meals in the Library.

Here’s how it works

We’ve taken our child-friendly, nutritious sauces, and given you a choice of carbohydrate to make familiar meals that children know and love, which are nutritionally balanced. The sauces come in in 100-portion, vacuum packed pouches, along with the dried pasta or rice. The sauces can be delivered chilled or frozen.

All you need to prepare the meals is a hob to heat the sauce and cook the pasta or rice, ready to be served. You don’t need an oven.

For a school with no kitchen facilities, Pasta King can provide on loan all the serving equipment required for our meals. If your school kitchen requires an additional serving point, we can also offer a solution by way of an on loan, stand-alone serving station.

Wallace & Gromit: good food that does good

Wallace and Gromit pasta

Our Wallace & Gromit pasta shapes are winners with Primary School children and caterers alike. We use the same finest quality 100% durum wheat pasta as our regular Pasta King pasta, so it has the same great qualities – it’ll keep its shape and taste throughout service – the difference is the quirky characters that give mealtimes a bit of extra fun.  Just pop a Pasta King sauce on top and you’re ready to go.

We are proud to support Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Charity helping critically ill children in hospitals and hospices across the UK. For every case of Wallace & Gromit pasta meals you buy, we will make a donation to the charity to help even more sick children and their families when they need it the most.
