Food at the Academy

Food plays a central role at the Academy and we believe it’s an important part of children’s learning to promote good eating habits and a healthy lifestyle.

All parents and children are invited to a free breakfast every morning from 8.45 am where cereal, bagels, and fruit juices are available to give everyone a good start to the day.

Our chef, who has a passion for supporting children’s healthy eating habits, prepares our lunches. The fresh, healthy meals have been specifically designed to support children’s development and are served in our main hall. Background music ensures an enjoyable eating experience and introduces children to different genres of music.

Having our own chef allows us the flexibility to adapt the menu if needed and to cater for children who may have food allergies or intolerances.

Our chef also visits the classrooms to introduce the children to the ingredients that she will be using in her cooking. We find that this helps children become a little braver when it comes to trying out new ingredients and developing their tastes.

Parents are emailed the weekly lunch menu so you can plan your child’s diet for the week. Parents are also invited to eat lunch with us every Tuesday and Thursday.
