About The Company
My name is Judith Bennett. I have worked for many years as a private caterer and for the past 5 years, I have been providing home-cooked lunches for a primary school in North London. I am passionate about children’s nutrition. I believe that it is essential that children not only get all the nutrients they need to grow, and have the energy to learn and to play, but also that they develop good eating habits from a young age and a love of fresh healthy food that will stay with them for life.
Over the years, the school catering business has really taken off. The kids wolf down my daily fresh lunches, and parents are thrilled to know their children are developing a love for fresh healthy food. They became keen to buy what I called my ‘hidden vegetable sauce’ which I use in many of my dishes, including shepherds pie, pasta, meat balls, on pizza and chicken. They started to tell their friends, and due to popular demand, I set up a stall at my local farmers market where it flew off the shelves.
I am now starting to sell my Hidden Vegetable Sauce in local shops in North London and hope to be further afield soon!
I feel so lucky that I have a business born out of my passion for children’s nutrition and good health. It is a simple concept, but it’s my tried and tested recipe that is the secret to its success. I use the perfect combination and variety of vegetables to give the sauce a natural sweetness that a child’s palett responds to, and my Hidden Vegetable Sauce is exactly what it says in the label – roasted and cooked vegetables. Though they don’t know it, the children are getting 7 vegetables in every portion, but I know from my happy little customers that they love every mouthful!
