I have been playing with the ideals of a healthy lifestyle or a balanced diet and this lead me to realise that these are the product of a varied diet. Many schools, government, hospital and workplace canteens run on a weekly rotation of the same foods. This helps for bulk ordering, staff management and learned ordering behaviours from their customers. Here at John Colet we have over a 3-week rotation of meals and menu plans for each season and over 40 different dishes. There are of course the favourites that pop up all year round but we are very lucky here to have the initiative to use current seasonal produce to our personal needs.
The simplicity of a daily, varied diet and vegetarian meal each and every school day is a wonderful start to every child’s life &even if they don t know it yet! My son, Tom, now asks for or orders a hot meal every day at his high school and eats everything something I could not have said in 3rd class when he ate virtually nothing. Persevere with a healthy and varied diet in your child’s life and they will thank you for it.
