Food, glorious food!

The Yum Yum Food Company and food expert Annabel Karmel

We know how important it is for children to stay fuelled on the right foods whilst in our care. We also recognise the importance of introducing a diverse range of delicious flavours to encourage good, healthy eating habits for the future. That’s why we have chosen to work with the Yum Yum Food Company, who have formed an exclusive partnership with the UK’s No.1 children’s cookery author and food expert Annabel Karmel. Committed to safeguarding all of the children in our care, we cater for specific food allergies, intolerances and culture requirements, whilst providing all of our children with nutritionally balanced, freshly prepared meals of the highest quality.

We educate them on the benefits of eating healthy food, raising their awareness of where food comes from, as well as encouraging good eating habits and table manners.

“We are committed to our children’s holistic development, we also use mealtimes as an opportunity to extend the children’s learning.”
