Frequently Asked Questions

1. WHAT DO I GET WHEN MY DAYCARE SIGNS UP FOR YUMMY TUCKERS?

Your child will receive their Daycare food requirements made and delivered by us directly to the child’s centre on the days you require it. The food is professionally balanced by our Dietitian, freshly made every day and of the highest quality.

2. WHAT SORT OF FOOD WILL MY CHILD RECEIVE?

The ‘meal’ consists of a morning tea, a lunch and an afternoon tea. You can view our menu on the menu page.
The food is low GI and contains no preservatives. Our sandwiches are made with multi grain bread which we have specially made for us so that it is not too brown, not too white and has just the right amount of grains making it very appealing for the kids.
Salads and shredded vegetables are used every day in the sandwich selections. All our healthy oat biscuits, vegetable/fruit filled muffins, cakes and muesli bars are produced from scratch and baked by us.
Our uncooked meats are roasted/ poached in our kitchen then either shredded or sliced ready for the sandwiches. Our fruit and veg is the highest grade and delivered to us daily. We have also designed the menu so that it is child friendly.

7. MY DAYCARE WILL NOT ALLOW NUTS- DO YOU OPERATE WITHIN THESE GUIDELINES?

Yes we do! We will conform to the policy many Day-cares adopt of reducing the risk for anaphylactic children attending day-care by not supplying whole nuts in our offerings.
We do not use or supply whole nuts in our products or supply peanut butter sandwiches or walnuts in muffins or cakes etc. But there will be traces of nuts in our products, for example the organic cocoa powder we use for some cakes has traces of nuts and the bread we use has ‘may contain traces of nuts on the package’.

8. WHY DO YOU HAVE A DISCLAIMER SAYING MAY CONTAIN NUTS OR TRACES OF NUTS?

Some of our suppliers do have nuts in their kitchens / manufacturing plants for other recipes they make, so there is a chance of cross contamination i.e. a trace of some form of nut may be possible. This is for your information. Once again if in doubt do not order.

9. HOW GREEN IS YOUR SERVICE?

Very Green!
Our food is served on platters so the previous day’s empty platters are collected during the next morning’s delivery then dropped off with the delivery vehicle sanitised and re used the next day.
Our minimal packaging consists of biodegradable cling film and yoghurt pots …..That’s it!! These products are made from plant based oils and are fully compostable.
Any food scraps from the kids generally gets used in the centres composters or taken home for the chickens or guineapigs.
