The nurseries were awarded the prestigious Food for Life Gold Catering Mark by organic certification body, the Soil Association. The award confirms that the nurseries are dedicated to serving fresh, healthy meals which is better for the environment through sourcing food from local suppliers.

Mel Fox, senior catering manager, said: “Having achieved this prestigious award we hope that our parents can feel confident that what goes into our menus to feed their children is the very best produce available. Good nutrition in the early years is crucially important for a child’s growth and development and will impact on their life-long health and well-being and success. The Catering Mark will ensure good quality; nutritious food and drinks are served alongside support and encouragement for children in the first five years of life to develop good eating habits for life.”
