Another important ethos of the John Colet School, which is well and truly a part of how we run the kitchen, is simply doing no harm . This is one of the many reasons we are vegetarian. It is also the reason why we try so hard to support and protect children with allergies. Last week we consumed a tremendous amount of food and today we will focus on the important fruits and vegetables. It is very pleasing to note that the addition of carrot to the fruit platter has been a great success.

Here is a list of just fruits and vegetables we consumed last week:
18 lettuce heads
12kgs of fresh tomatoes
10kgs of fresh cucumbers
6kgs fresh capsicums
5 fresh celery heads
12kgs of fresh zucchini
30kgs fresh carrots
5kgs fresh potatoes
5kgs fresh sweet potatoes
20kgs fresh onions
60kgs fresh watermelons
80 fresh oranges
60 fresh apples
15kgs tinned tomatoes
6kgs sultanas

Eat well,
