Leela’s lunches is in the business of shaping the palates of the future generation, towards real and whole foods. We do this smartly, and gradually, by, for instance, adding vegetables to sauces, eliminating additives, preservatives, sugar and refined products, introducing higher proportions of wholegrains and slowly crowding out junk. We accomplish this alongside fun in class educational activities where children learn what real food is, where it comes from, how to read labels, the importance of fresh, home cooked meals to build their growing brains and bodies and create the cells that will last them through their life.
We believe these are the fundamental values to Leela’s Lunches that we work to on a day-to-day basis that support the success of the business, its customers and all partners.
