Nutrition Program

Here at Connaught School we believe that providing your child with nutritious food is integral to helping healthy brains and bodies grow. We offer a breakfast program every day before school starts, so that everyone has a chance to start their day without a hungry belly. There is no fee for the breakfast program. 

Connaught also offers a lunch program. You can purchase a lunch card from the office for $15 which will provide your child with 20 lunches.

 

What do the $15 meal cards give you?

  • Lunch every school day for only $0.75 per day
  • Meals high in nutrition including fruits and vegetables

 

What can you buy for $15.00/month (approximately) with the same nutritional value?

Text Box: • 2 chicken breasts $5.00 • 2 cucumbers $2.00

●    1 head of broccoli $3.00                    

●    4 bananas $2.00

●    2 cups of yogurt $3.00

 

 

Food for thought: Would this be enough food to make 20 meals for one family member?

 

 

Nutritional foods decrease the risk of:

●     Diabetes

●     High blood pressure

●     Heart disease

●     Obesity

●     High cholesterol

●     Poor school performance

 

 

As we still want to provide nutritious lunch meals for your children while they are at school, we are asking that you please bring the $15.00 payment for the meal card to the school.
