Could Banning Packed Lunches Help Your Nursery?

12th July 2022

We recently met up with two of our nurseries, Kamelia Kids Day Nursery & Beach School in Goring, West Sussex and Whitehill Nursery in Crowborough, East Sussex, to find out why they made Zebedees hot lunches a must have for all children - and packed away the packed lunches.

We spent a really enjoyable day with both nurseries, where the Directors kindly gave their time to answer our questions around why they made the decision to switch their packed lunch children over to a Zebedees hot lunch, and we were able to see first-hand the children enjoying our meals. We brought Brighton Video Production with us to film and put together a case study on each nursery, so we are able to share with our other clients how moving away from a combination of packed lunches and Zebedees meals to Zebedees meals only, could also work for them.

Some of the benefits are:
  • Children get used to different foods, flavours and tastes – this helps with the transition to school dinners – and eating a varied diet throughout life.
  • No need to check lunch boxes for foods that could cause an allergic reaction.
  • Extra storage space - no longer any need to store lunch boxes.
  • The knowledge that all children are receiving at least one balanced, freshly cooked, hot meal each day.
  • Smoother lunch-time set up.
  • Saves parents time in the morning!

If your nursery is currently offering a combination of packed lunches and Zebedees meals and you are considering making a change to hot lunches for all, we would be happy to help you make this transition.

We can offer:
  • An 8 week trial – including one week of free lunches.
  • A member of our Client Relations team at your nursery to help with service on the first day of the trial.
  • Reward stickers for the children.
  • A poster to advertise to parents.
  • A taster session for parents to try our meals with a member of the Zebedees team on hand to answer any of their questions.
  • A complimentary Rainbow Pizza Class.

If you would be interested in a free trial, please contact Dawn at or call on 01323 811307.
