Wellingtons Regent Nursery

Wellingtons Regent Nursery

Wellingtons Day Nurseries are a small group of warm, caring nurseries which focused on providing a friendly and exciting learning environment for the children in their care.

The problem of providing healthy child-friendly meals

In 2017 Wellingtons Day Nursery was struggling to cater for the growing number of children they looked after every day. Initially they worked with an in-house cook, but quickly realised they needed to provide a continuously high-standard of nutritious food on a larger scale.

Key Points

  • Wellingtons Day Nursery needed an efficient way to serve high-quality nutritious meals.

Providing easy, nutritious meals for children

apetito was a perfect solution for Wellingtons Day Nursery because they wanted an efficient way to serve their lunches without compromising on quality. As a growing nursery, apetito provided an adaptive way to meet the needs of the busy nursery schedule.

Lesley Reedie, Owner at Wellingtons Day Nursery explains, “What appealed to us about apetito was that the meals were ready-made, we could simply put them in the oven for the time specified on the pack, safe in the knowledge they would be ready to go exactly when we needed them; providing us with a much more streamlined process.”

Reedie and her team were able to provide parents with clear information regarding allergens, nutritional value and dietary requirements with each nursery menu. Over time the partnership with apetito led to a reduction in food waste, as staff were able to better manage portion sizes.

Working with apetito to provide their children nutritious meals was beneficial for both staff and parents. Giving parents peace of mind that their children are receiving the very best, while providing significant savings for Wellingtons Day Nursery.

Key Points

  • Working with apetito gave staff confidence they were consistently providing good food, and parents the knowledge that their children were eating well.

How apetito will support the growth of Wellingtons Day Nursery

As Wellingtons Nurseries continues to expand and grow, apetito is ready to adapt with them. Lesley Reedie explains, “Our business is expanding, and we are looking to buy more nurseries as we speak. As we continue to grow apetito will naturally come onboard with us and will continue to do so with any further nurseries we bring on.”

The apetito partnership means that Wellingtons Nursery has support from apetito’s in-house nutritionist, so they can continue providing high quality nursery meals to support their children’s growth and development. As they grow, the team at Wellingtons can take advantage of the apetito Nursery Meals benefits, like free nationwide delivery and simple online ordering.

Key Points

  • Looking to the future, Wellingtons Day Nursery will be using apetito as their business grows.
