Our team is comprised of many skilled and talented food professionals. It is critical for us to have a team that believes in our purpose and shares their gifts and talents each and every day. Each and every one of our staff contributes to enriching lives daily.
Red Seal Chefs & Kitchen Team
We have a team of dedicated Red Seal Chefs, led by our seasoned Executive Chef and Production Manager. Chef Alan ensures that our meals are made with wholesome in mind. Recipes are created to enhance the natural flavour of our foods while keeping the taste buds of our young eaters in mind.
Our kitchen teams, including six Red Seal Chefs, start preparing home cooked meals while the kids are still asleep. We make our own hot lunches fresh each day from our kitchen. Our kitchen is busy each morning as we create, bake and cook entrees that get delivered hot and ready¬-to-¬eat in time for lunch! In the afternoon we are preparing snacks, including baking muffins, preparing sandwiches, peeling fruits, and marinating chicken that will be cooked and delivered fresh the next morning.
Menu Development & Nutrition Team
Our menus are full of wholesome foods; fruits, vegetables, protein, whole grains and organics, which supports the Ontario Government’s Action Plan for Healthy Eating and Active Living. Everything we serve is developed and approved by our knowledgeable Executive Chef, Registered Dietitian, Allergy Administrator and is approved by a third party Registered Dietitian.
We make sure the nutritional components are taken care of for you. Our Registered Dietitian performs nutritional reviews on all our foods and ingredients to ensure our focus is on simple, healthy food, that is lower in sugar and salt, and give kids the nourishment they need.
Allergy Management Team
Our Allergy Management team carefully manages kids’ food allergies and restrictions and works closely with our customers to understand and meet each child’s specific needs. Our facility is a nut¬ free, pork free and shellfish-free facility. Our Allergy Administrator, who is a Red Seal Chef, our Nutritionist and Registered Dietitian work together to ensure our Allergy Management ERP module is managed thoroughly, and kids receive meal replacements that meet their dietary needs.
All replacement meals and snacks are prepared in a segregated area in the kitchen each day.
