We cater to 1000's of children per day within Childcare. Everyday we experience children with allergies & issues with ranging from food intolerances to anaphylaxis. We assign significant resources to allergy control from our Qualified Chefs and Food Safety Managers and dedicated work areas, and cross contamination controls purely for this purpose. e.g we have separate rooms and processes ranging from pre-batch (raw material), preparation, cooking, chilling to meal packing in hermetically sealed meal trays.


Parents should be assured that we will remain ever vigilant so KidCater meals comply with our allergen testing controls.
