Welcome

Tiny Tums has been cooking home-made meals for children since 2020, with a focus on providing wholesome, hearty dishes which children enjoy.
Our menus are designed with children in mind and aim to encourage healthy eating habits by providing a diverse and colourful menu tailored to their nutritional needs.
Our meal plans are carefully reviewed by a nutritionist to ensure they are balanced.  She shares our aims of educating children eat more healthily in order to boost energy and optimise wellbeing.
Tiny Tums intends to create an interactive lunch setting where the children can suggest some of their favourite options.  We are also open to hearing recommendations from parents.

Our drive to provide children with the best nutritional start in life goes hand in hand with Loreto’s core values of providing children with the best possible start to their education.

We look forward to working with Loreto from January next year and will be offering taster sessions at school.  These will take place on Wednesday 18th and Thursday 19th January 2023, between 3pm and 4pm, and will give parents the chance to meet us in person, ask any questions, and, most importantly, sample our delicious and wholesome meals!

 

Cooked lunches are served in the school dining room by an outside catering company called Tiny Tums.  Alternatively pupils may bring a packed lunch, we encourage these meals to include sandwiches, yoghurt, fruit or similar.  There is no provision for heating food.
Fizzy drinks and glass bottles are not allowed, however water is essential. Our Sustainable Schools Committee encourage the use of refillable bottles which can be refilled at the water stations around the school.

The cost for the Spring Term is:

£224.10 for pupils in years Nursery-Year 2.

£240.30 for pupils in Years 3-6.

This is payable by Saturday 31st December 2022.

Our menu is certified by a nutritionist to ensure each week all the food groups are incorporated within the meal plan using seasonal produce. Tiny Tums have already tried and tested the example menu on nurseries and individuals at home, which means we have already done the market research prior to this presentation in order to know which meals work and which are not as well received. The aim is to create a menu that follows the health guidelines but also, makes it appealing for children to want to eat the meals.

Our meals will include:
Lunch Portion per child – Providing a daily Menu to include a vegetarian option.
Dessert per child

In summary:

Our menus will have one option per day including the No Meat menu on Fridays.
Our Vegetarian options will be adaptations of the main meal i.e. Chicken Curry; Vegan Chicken Curry.
Dietaries and Allergies will be taken into consideration as an additional option (again an adaptation of
the main meal – Lactose-free Chicken Curry). As long as the Catering Manager in charge is informed
beforehand, the meals will be prepared (separately) to the daily menus which include Gluten Free,
Lactose-Free, and Egg Free and we are flexible with catering for other allergies.
All our meals are nut-free and chicken is halal, and will not contain seafood or pork.
Desserts will be varied and will offer fruit and dairy options.
Meals are sourced using seasonal fresh produce.
Each plate is well well balanced and certified by a nutritionist.

Our aim – For ALL children to have a chance of a healthy start …. (even the pickier eaters!)
