FOOD EDUCATION

At Redbridge School, Food Education is a key part of the children’s learning journey. We are convinced that the meals we serve not only have an impact on the environment, but also on our children’s well being. Therefore we have partnered with Nuno Queiroz Ribeiro to ensure that we are educating our children through the food they eat daily.

We see our canteen as an extension of our classroom and also one of the tools in our quest for a more sustainable world. Our nutritious menus complement our programme of physical and outdoor activities to ensure good personal health and well-being for every child.

Meal times are considered both an educational and communal moment of school life. Social and communication skills as well as good manners and self-management skills are developed at meal times, in context.

Redbridge School promotes a healthy and well-balanced diet.

– Our canteen follows a Mediterranean diet, reflecting both our geographic location and respecting a conscious, responsible and sustainable attitude to cuisine;

– We offer a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, whilst limiting red meat and refined sugar and reducing salt in all our menus;

– Wednesdays are exclusively vegetarian days, with organic produce on offer, which we believe to be the most sustainable way to respect the natural resources of our planet;

– Redbridge School has a No Nuts Policy;

– Only water is brought in from home by the children. Everything else is catered for by the school.

As part of our Food Education program, we regularly invite the parents and children of our community to take part in cooking workshops at school. Community education helps us to better understand the providence of our food, increasing the involvement and interest in providing healthy and well-balanced meals at school and at home.
