Go! Kidz is a range of veggie-packed, “Fresh-Frozen” meals for kids 5-18 years. Classics such as Lasagne, Meatballs & Pasta, Cottage Pie, Pasta Bolognese and our super-healthy Chicken Nuggets. Each meal has been nutritionally composed by dieticians using only fresh Aussie produce – local vegetables and free-range meats, no nasties and cooked like you do at home.
Go! Kidz was founded simply because we love children and feel it’s every parents obligation to provide the best for their kids in whatever situation.
As parents, we want our children to experience everything, to be inquisitive, to discover, learn, explore, feel, understand and develop in to the most wholesome human beings they can be, and we believe it all starts with the food they eat. Food is fuel, and your body is the engine that drives everything we are as people; put the bad stuff in and your body won’t work as well.
For children, it’s even more important to have a healthy, balanced intake of food to ensure they have the energy to keep up with their activities at home, school, hobbies and fun-time.
There is an enormous body of research that directly correlates the food children eat to their physical and mental wellbeing, how they learn, concentrate and creative problem solve, to their sense of self-esteem and how they interact socially.
However, the reality of life, is that, as parents and the guardians of our precious little bundles of love, more often than not, although we may have the all best intentions in the world, life gets in the way, we get back late from a swimming lesson, a dance class, basketball practice, music tuition, or work!
Cooking food takes planning, preparation and a whole heap of time, which let’s face it, there isn’t enough of!!
That’s why we launched Go! Kidz – as parents ourselves who care about what our kids eat but recognise it’s not always easy to have healthy, nutritious, tasty food on the table exactly when you need it, we have devised a range of meals that have been battle-tested on real live children between the ages of 5-12 years. We’ve taken meals they already love and made super tasty, super healthy versions – your kids won’t even know they’re packed with vegetables, ancient grains, wholewheat ingredients, organic grain fed and free-range meats and eggs.
We want children to be excited about food, understand how and where it’s grown, how the farmers love their produce and care for it to make it the best it possibly can be without adding chemicals, grown the way nature intended it to be.
