Sourcing Our Ingredients

Working with trusted and valued suppliers we source only the best quality ingredients from known sources. Sourcing local, ethical and culturally appropriate ingredients is a priority at Nurture Kids.

Working Sustainably

Ensuring our services are environmentally friendly and sustainable is at the forefront of all our production and delivery processes. Wherever possible we use reusable packaging for storing and delivering our food.  Minimising disposable plastic packaging from suppliers and within our business is also something we work hard to achieve.


“We recently had a very pleasant and stress free experience using this company to cater for our centre when our cook was away for a week. Frith was absolutely amazing, so helpful, resourceful and open to feedback about the children’s likes and dislikes. They are just starting out, their prices are reasonable and the food is incredible.”
