Healthy food,
Healthy bodies,
Healthy minds

As the UK’s leading nursery catering company, we provide delicious, nutrient-rich, balanced meals to nursery school children, so they can enjoy every school day to the fullest.

In fact, our lunches, baby purées, fruit & salad boxes and afternoon teas have been helping children across the South East learn, grow and play for more than 25 years.

And thanks to our brilliant nutritional consultant and dedicated team of experts, we cater for dietary, allergy and cultural requirements, so no child ever misses out.

We get up early, so you don’t have to

Our chefs get up with the birds to put love and care into every wholesome meal, so when lunchtime rolls around, all you’ve got to do is serve. Because your dishes arrive piping hot and ready to eat, every single school day.
This is all thanks to our branded fleet of Zebedees vans, which carry your food in temperature-controlled, insulated boxes.

Nurturing young minds

Over 10,000 children across the South East of England tuck into our hot nursery meals every school day, and 3,500 enjoy our afternoon teas. We have their health, wellbeing and development in our hands, and this is something we take extremely seriously.

We believe every child should be given the best possible chance to learn, grown and play, which is why we take such care to provide them with nutritionally balanced meals, made using fresh ingredients.

We have been a customer of Zebedees for many years and this is simply because they are the best. They provide wonderful nutritious food for the children, their online ordering system is easy to use and they can cater for all our children's allergies and dietary needs. The team at Zebedees are fantastic, in particular Dawn always goes above and beyond. Thank you for everything.

Group Manager at Snowdrop House

We love Zebedees - they take the stress of providing nutritional and tasty food to the children. The children (and staff) enjoy the meals that arrive hot and ready to dish.

Manager at Little Cherubs

Our nursery has used Zebedees for the past 17 years. They have excellent customer service and any issues (and there have not been many at all) have always been dealt with promptly and efficiently. The delivery drivers always deliver the meals with a smile on their face. The food is delicious and nutritional and even our fussiest of eaters enjoy the dinners. We love Zebedees!

Manager at Tots & Time Out

We have been using Zebedees for nearly 5 years now, we opened up our nursery and they were very professional to cater for a smaller amount until we had a full setting. Zebedees are very professional, food is delicious and the children get very excited when they see our delivery driver. He has become part of the family.
