What’s in our recipes?
Ingredient integrity is the most important thing to us. All our meals are made with the best whole foods with no added colours or preservatives. We add flavour naturally using top quality vegetables and meats. All the chicken and egg found in your meal is free range. We also only use sustainably caught Hoki in our fish pie which is certified by the Marine Stewardship Council. We endeavour to use Australian produce where possible.
What should I do with my packaging?
The environment is your child’s future and we care a whole lot about that. We aim to keep our production and packaging waste to a minimum. Both the outer cardboard sleeve and the black meal tray are 100% recyclable. The sealing film can not be recycled and should be discarded. Wash your tray before adding it to your recycle bin or keep it for pantry or fridge storage containers. Maybe even use them on the kids desk to keep pencils and crayons in etc. Or you could even pierce little holes in the bottom and get the kids propagating seedlings in them!
How have you determined portion sizes?
We want your children to be satisfied by our meals. Weights of our meals are 350 grams to cater for the requirements of varying age groups. If you find the meals are too large, divide the meals between the kids or eat it yourself. You won’t be disappointed!
Why are the meals frozen?
Simple! Because we don’t use preservatives in our meals, freezing is the purest form of preservation to lock in nutrients and maintain ingredient integrity. Freezing also means greater convenience for you and there is no food wastage at our end or yours!
What’s the best way to prepare the meal?
Meals can be heated in the oven or microwave. Many of our meals are recommended to be re heated in the oven. Whilst this takes longer, the end result is far superior adding to the enjoyment and sensory pleasure of the meal. The trays are heat resistent to 220 deg celsius. Refer to the specific information on each package of each meal for cooking times and instructions. Meals are best heated directly from frozen. Note that oven and microwave cooking times can vary considerably depending on your appliances. Please be aware of steam which may be released when you peel back the film and don’t let children handle the hot trays.
Can I return a product?
If you are unhappy with your product or our service, we apologise. We are a start up business! Whilst we have worked towards providing the best service we can, we do anticipate that “teething problems” may arise. Please don’t post it on line. Give us a chance to resolve any problems by contacting us. Customer service and quality is extremely important to us and we’ll endeavour to fix it! Who knows, we might become good mates…
