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 adding vegetables to sauces, eliminating additives, preservatives, sugar and refined products, introducing higher proportions of wholegrains and slowly crowding out junk.
We accomplish this using fun educational activities where children learn what real food is, where it comes from, how to read labels, the importance of freshly cooked meals to build their growing minds and bodies.
I am a chef, holistic health coach and most importantly mum to two beautiful children, Leela and Frank. I have been privileged to combine these different ‘hats’ to provide my children with real, healthy and yet delicious food.
I also have the opportunity to teach my kids about what they are eating, why, and the importance of nutrition whilst they are still young. Their palette is being shaped to appreciate what is right for mind and body from the outset.
We love sharing our tried and tested tips, tricks and recipes for getting little bubs to eat healthy! Here are some quick and easy recipes, from our kitchen to yours. Hope your child enjoys eating them as much as we did creating them!
Healthy and fresh food should not be an occasional occurrence, but rather, a way of life. At Leela's lunches, we want to make that happen for our children, and health conscious parents, too.
Our products and offerings cover the gamut of meals: from hot or cold school lunches and snacks, nursery ‘in class’ service and wholesome party food (yes, it is possible!).
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.
