Being a small nursery means that we haven't got the resources to allow us to prepare food in-house for our children. The Nursery Kitchen provides convenience and peace of mind. We know that our children are getting a balanced diet and Katy's flexibility means that they all have an opportunity to enjoy their food, whatever their specific needs.

Little Cherubs started working with The Nursery Kitchen when we took on a second nursery in 2008. I knew in doing this it meant we would be ticking all the boxes for nutrition, allergy and special dietary requirements. Have only ever had excellent service and when we've disasters such as freezer meltdown they were fast to supply us with replacements. Would highly recommend, great company.

-Angela Harper

Initially we used The Nursery Kitchen for dinners for our little ones but we have recently started ordering desserts and after school snacks for children up to 11 years old. We know that the food is well balanced and nutritious and the children absolutely love it! The puddings and snacks go down particularly well - Katy's Tomato and Ham Bake is a real favourite.

-Nicky Prance

I'm sorry I didn't use the Nursery Kitchen years ago! As I busy nursery owner, I need to spend my time concentrating on providing first class day care for my children. The Nursery Kitchen allows me to do this, making my life so much easier. Our children are well fed with top quality, wholesome and nutritious food, packed full of taste. Menus are changed regularly too so that there's plenty of variety for our little ones. Nothing is too much trouble for Katy and her team. She is able to adapt her menus to suit children who may have intricate dietary requirements. I would 110% recommend the Nursery Kitchen and I'm happy to be associated with them!

-Bev Jones

We used The Nursery Kitchen for the first time for 2 weeks in June 15 during a busy period when our regular cook was on holiday. I must say how impressed I was with the ease of ordering. The menus were designed for us, meeting all our special dietary requirements, and the food was delivered individually labelled for each child.
