The school canteen is a great place to promote an enjoyment of healthy eating. For
students who use the canteen regularly, the food purchased makes a significant contribution
to their total food intake and nutrition; therefore it makes sense to ensure the
best food possible is available to enhance their ability to learn and take in the
information presented to them in class.
A well-balanced, wholesome and nutritious food, both vegetarian and non-vegetarian,
with South Indian, Gujarathi, North Indian, Continental and Thai cuisine, is provided
to the students. All the members of staff dine with the students.
The visiting parents are welcome to scrutinize the weekly menu displayed on the
Notice Board in the Dining hall and join the students at a meal. The menu is changed
every week to cater to variety.
The school caters specially to the needs of children who are under special dietary restrictions.
Any special item of food not included in the menu will be provided to the children on the advice of the Resident Medical Officer.
Separate vegetarian, Jain and non-vegetarian kitchens and dining halls cater for
South Indian, North Indian, Thai, Continental and Jain Cuisine.
Food preferences are developed in childhood. By promoting and encouraging healthier
food choices during childhood, it is anticipated that healthy eating habits will
be carried through to adulthood and may go some way to help prevent chronic disease
later in life. The focus of the NHSC project is to encourage the development and
reinforcement of healthy eating patterns at school, promoting a balanced healthy
eating pattern rather than focusing on weight management.
