Nutritional Education

We are as concerned about your child’s eating habits as you are. That is why we offer tasty healthy snacks and lunches to our students.

ABC Educational Kitchen is part our educational group. It is responsible for planning, preparing and serving all the food in school. It prepares nutritionally balanced meals and snacks to our students, parents, staff and visitors. The work ABC Educational Kitchen does goes beyond serving healthy food; it teaches all our students about food, food groups, general nutrition and how to prepare some healthy things to eat and drink.

Our Menus

We work with children of all different age groups. We oversee snacks and lunches and offer individual attention to students with eating issues and allergies. We strive to use as many fresh and natural ingredients as possible and about 80% of the greens, and vegetables we serve are organic.
