Growing up with the right attitude towards healthy eating and appreciating good food is the attitude we would like to instill in our students and their families. We firmly believe that if we require the students to learn, behave well and thrive we can not separate eating well and nourishing their bodies from education. Children need energy and stamina for learning therefore giving them the best food is so important.
During our work cycle children are included in food preparation and a discussion about food, as we are preparing fresh, plant-based/vegan meals right on the premises. Our students get to touch, see and learn about the foods we cook. They learn about how food grows, where it grows and what nutritional value it has. We are growing some vegetables in our outdoor area, which the students take care of and harvest. The meals are simple, children friendly and nutritious at the same time. For example, our students eat organic hearty oatmeal with blueberries for a snack and lentil stew with quinoa and green salad for lunch. We are also discussing some common issues we face today with food, such as GMO's, chemical sprays and of course processed foods and inappropriate eating habits.
