Our lunch options

We have a professional nutrition team who design all menus. Nurture Kids makes meals fresh daily using seasonal ingredients.

We understand the important role nutrition plays in a child’s wellbeing and learning, and well as making healthy food choices look, smell and taste good so kids will eat them.

Our expertly designed menus provide appropriate nourishment that appeals to children’s tastes, reflecting diverse cultures and the unique needs of a school environment.

Our kitchen

This is our purpose-built commercial kitchen in Avondale, designed specifically to provide catering services for children. Our strategic location means we can easily deliver early childcare lunches across Auckland.

Sourcing our ingredients

Working with trusted and valued suppliers, we use only the best quality ingredients from sources we know. One of our top priorities is to use local, ethical and culturally appropriate ingredients to make our healthy lunches.
