Food & Nutrition

A healthy nutritious diet for our children that develops a broad range of tastes.

It is one of our main aims at Once Upon a Time to ensure all children in our care have a balanced diet, we recognise the importance of providing a healthy nutritious diet for our children that develops a broad range of tastes. That’s why we chose our food suppliers very carefully. Our hot meals are not only nutritious but as the children say themselves, yummy and delicious. They stimulate children’s taste buds with a huge variety of gorgeous flavours and textures.

Please find below the information about the company which provides our food as it is very important for us that you know exactly where you child’s food comes from.
