Frequently Asked Questions


What is Petit Gourmet?

Petit Gourmet is the first meal plans service that offers organic, healthy, fresh, delicious, varied, safe & eco-friendly lunch boxes for kids from 2 to 10 years old. Our delicious lunch boxes are prepared from fresh and organic/premium ingredients on daily basis and directly delivered to nurseries and schools.

Who is behind Petit Gourmet?

Petit Gourmet was founded by Céline in 2017, engineer and mother of 2 little boys. She quickly understood the daily challenge for parents to prepare healthy tasty and varied meals to little ones.

In 2018, she met Virginie, mum of 2 little girls. They decided to join forces and share their common vision: working for future generations and helping preserve the planet.

Concerned by lack of ingredients transparency & amount of plastic thrown everyday, their goal is to reshape what has the biggest impact on our health: our daily food.

The Healthy lunch box revolution has started!
