"Our commitment to healthy eating for young children stems from the belief that it is essential to provide the right nutrition to ensure our children grow and develop well whilst in our care. Using a single supplier like Creed Foodservice for our frozen, fresh, grocery, chilled and butchery foods has allowed Toad Hall to be sure of the quality and provenance of all products delivered.
A traceable supply chain is a priority for us, hence the importance of working with a wholesaler like Creed with similar values, who is able to offer meat for example from assured sources. Parents have the reassurance that the nursery only uses Red Tractor Farm Assured meats, RSPCA Assured meats, Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified sustainable seafood, organic milk and free-range eggs – all supplied through Creed.
Ensuring that our food deliveries are controlled is essential not just from a cost perspective. With Creed, we have reliable deliveries, and we know exactly where the food we order has come from. I firmly believe that excellent childcare is about producing well rounded and confident children who are keen to learn and this can only happen if a child is well-fed and happy."
