Overview

Children need wellbalanced meals for good physical, mental, emotional and social development. Indeed, good nutrition is critical to student achievement. The better nourished student will generally have better attendance, be more attentive and have more energy to cope with the challenges of the schoolday. The goal of the Hot Lunch Program, at Our Lady of Victory School, is to ensure that all our pupils have the opportunity of receiving high quality, nutritionally balanced, affordable meals, during each school day. The lunches contain a variety of foods and offer students exposure to new and exciting choices. For example, the children get to try foods to which they may not be accustomed, such as those with an international flavour. Through the program, students learn good nutrition habits that provide a basis for better health throughout their lives. The program provides meals that are consistent with Dietary Guidelines and current scientific nutritional recommendations. The program is reinforced by the teaching staff in the class rooms and focuses on:

- Eating for health meeting the dietary guidelines

- Making food choices nutrition education

- Maximising resources getting the best value

Monthly menus are planned to incorporate dietary guidelines, including; an increase in fibre and a reduction in fat, sugar and salt. Menus are planned at the School level to incorporate suggestions and preferences from parents.
