Healthy Meals

At White Rose Academy, we understand how important it is for your child’s development to receive well-balanced, nutritional meals. We also understand that children are developing preferences for tastes and need to be encouraged to try a wide variety of foods. With this in mind, White Rose Academy provides a wide variety of daily snacks and a varied menu of lunches. Our teachers and children eat together, family-style, to reinforce good eating habits and table manners.

We believe that our family-style dining with friends and teachers provides children with an excellent opportunity to develop valuable social skills. This integrated setting encourages children to try a wide variety of healthy, nutritional foods as they are developing preferences for different tastes.

We have gardens in our playground where the children learn how to grow fruit and vegetables. The children enjoy taking care of the plants and look forward to harvesting and eating their produce.

These are some primary messages that are taught and reinforced:

  • Healthy foods come from farms (and our own garden at White Rose Academy)
  • Eat fruits and vegetables every meal
  • Eat whole grains
  • Eat low-fat dairy products and calcium-rich foods
  • Drink water throughout the day
  • Wash hands before eating

If your child has a special dietary need, please discuss this with us so that we may take appropriate precautions and provide a substitute menu. We want you to feel as comfortable about your child’s nutrition as you are with their education.
