Nursery Kitchen have received two prestigious Nourish Awards! Our Pea and Paneer curry claimed the top spot with a Gold Award, while our Salmon and Pineapple Thai Curry earned a very respectable Silver Award.
Winners were announced at the 5th Annual Nourish Awards; a vibrant black-tie event held on 22nd September at the Caledonian Club in Belgravia. The evening was hosted by chef, nutritionist, and author Naomi Devlin, whose fun and witty presentation style added an extra layer of enjoyment to the fantastic event.
Known in the industry for having the toughest entry criteria and judging process, the Nourish Awards are widely recognised within the food and beverage industry. Moreover, they are the UKs leading health food awards for businesses.
Prerequisites for entry into the Nourish Awards include low or lower sugar or free from refined sugars and chemical sweeteners; and no gluten (except for oats). Critically, products should have outstanding quality and be innovative, healthy, nourishing, and tasty.
Following a blind taste testing of over 300 entrants, an expert judging panel consisting of nutritionists, health, and food industry experts, gave top marks to both Nursery Kitchen entries, which ultimately, secured gold and silver positions for the winning dishes in the Baby and Toddler Food category.
Diana Babics, founder of the Nourish Awards, said:
“This year’s awards saw unprecedented innovation in the health and free-from sectors. Convenience foods, supplements and plant-based products surprised and delighted the judges in particular. We are incredibly proud to celebrate these fantastic products and the passionate people behind them, who are leading the way to a healthier future.”

We are thrilled to launch our new Summer menu, which has been lovingly created by our new Food Innovation Team! Consisting of creative development chefs and specialist nutritionists, this talented team work together to ensure that our menu is tasty, full of variety and meets the specific nutritional and dietary needs of young children of different ages.
There’s a lot that goes into planning our menu and creating new meals but in just a few months, we’ve added 8 incredibly delicious and healthy dishes.
We’ve also given our Lamb Hot Pot recipe a nutritional makeover! It’s now packed with vitamins, minerals, and protein, which also make this dish tastier than ever.
Another change to our menu is the removal of Fish Fingers and Chicken Goujons. We believe that this is a step in the right direction to providing children with the most nutritionally balanced meals while at nursery.
We are super excited to already be working on the new Winter Menu 2022, where there will be even more new dishes, offering exciting taste adventures and enhanced nutritional qualities for the early years.
