Food choices

If your child does not eat some foods (because of allergies or religious reasons), please send a note telling the school which foods your child should not eat. This information will go on  your child’s account so that lunch helpers can help your child choose what to eat.

School menus

The monthly school lunch menus are sent home each month. The menu is also on the district website (click here to download the menu in PDF).

Importance of breakfast

Research shows that children who eat a good breakfast do better in school.

Children who skip breakfast make more mistakes, have more difficulty remembering, and are less able to tell the difference between similar things. (Pollitt E, Leibel RL, Greenfield D. “Brief fasting, stress, and cognition in children.” American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 1981; 34:1526-1533)

Eating breakfast helps children do better on  mental tasks and handle frustration. (Bellisle F. “Effects of diet on behaviour and cognition in children.” British Journal of Nutrition 2004;92 Suppl 2, S227-S232)
