Our nursery meals are made by Zebedees Lunch Box – an outstanding dedicated nursery meal provider.
Employees have health and safety and food hygiene certificates and qualifications. Meals are freshly made and delivered daily. Special dietary and allergy needs are always taken into account.
Zebedees works closely with Sarah Almond – a paediatric dietician – to design their menus, which are analysed to make sure they meet the specific dietary needs of nursery-age children.
Lunch and tea menus together meet the Caroline Walker Trust daily nutritional guidelines for children aged under 5. This means they receive a well-balanced and nutritious diet, with a low intake of salt but the right levels of carbohydrates and nutrients.
