DID YOU KNOW? One fifth of children are overweight or obese when they begin school
We aim to make it easier for kids to eat a balanced meal and teach them about it.
Our recipes have been designed with a Professor of nutrition and are nutritionally analysed.

HEALTHY PIZZA FROM EAT BALANCED
We are different because each of our pizzas are packed with the best, all natural ingredients – in exactly the right proportions to make them a complete balanced meal.
The nutrition team analysed loads of other pizzas and found out that the main features were:
- Too high in saturated fat and salt
- Too low in fibre, vitamins and minerals
THE CLEVER IDEA
Salt vs Seaweed
We replaced the salt with seaweed! With less than 10% of the sodium content you get in salt. The kids can’t see it and it provides a nice flavour whilst it adds many other important nutrients, such as iron, iodine and vitamin B12.
Subsequently, all of our pizzas are already well below the UK government’s salt targets (section 10), but they don’t taste like they need salt.
We worked hard to get a high fibre base without looking too brown and becoming too dense, which can put some kids off. Our pizzas use a natural fibre and kids love the look and taste, WIN-WIN.
We don’t fortify our pizzas but add additional vegetables into the sauce which means they are naturally high in vitamin A and vitamin C.
