Welcome to the new Zebedee's Lunch Box website. We are very excited to announce the launch of our new site, which we have been working hard at developing over the course of 2010.
The aim of our new site is to keep clients up to date with developments at Zebedee's and to provide easy access to information on our company, including nutritional information on our menus, and useful downloads, such as our current menus, allergy advice and temperature sheets.
We are also in the process of developing an online ordering system, which clients will be able to access via the Members Area of our new site. This will enable clients to place their weekly orders online. The system will be introduced on a gradual basis to enable us to provide our nurseries and schools with comprehensive training, ensuring that all clients are confident using the new system and have a full understanding of the ordering process.
As well as our new site, we are also pleased to announce that our current nursery lunch and tea menus, and our winter menus due to launch on 1st November, meet the Under 5's guidelines and standards set out by the Caroline Walker Trust, the current leading authority on nutrition in early years. We have worked closely with our Paediatric Dietician and spent several months developing our menus, to ensure that they meet the specific nutritional needs of each of the age groups that we cater for. All of our menus, for both nurseries and schools, are now nutritionally analysed. Our school menus adhere to the guidelines and standards of the School Food Trust.
Earlier this year the Government launched a review into the quality of food in early years settings, with the consideration of implementing statutory nutritional standards. We are confident that we now have the practices in place to ensure that we meet with any future regulations set out by the Government. The regulation of nursery food is something that we welcome, as it is younger children that are most at risk from malnourishment and it is during the first years of a child's life that healthy eating habits are formed. We believe that working together with our nurseries, we are in a fantastic position to promote healthy eating behaviour for life.
Thank you for visiting our new site. We hope that you have found it useful and will visit our news pages again for the all latest at Zebedee's Lunch Box.
