Lunch and Snack at Pines

We believe that the education of the whole child is carried out through to nutrition. We make it a priority to help children understand how the food we eat fuels our bodies and how important it is to make healthy choices and to try new things. Nutritious and varied snacks and lunch is served every day. We are pleased to offer our Pines prepared lunch menu.  Each meal is planned, prepped and prepared in our onsite commercial kitchen.  Chef Liz builds our menu with an eye on introducing new foods to the children. Our lunches are full of color and nutrients and are made with fresh and wholesome ingredients that are beautifully plated and presented. Often herbs, fruits, and vegetables picked from our school gardens are incorporated. Participation is optional, you are welcome to send a lunch from home.  Included with your tuition is your child's mid-morning snack, delivered to their classroom each day. We invite you to view the menu at the links to the side.

We also believe that this time is a learning process in which children practice their Practical Life skills. From the youngest student to the oldest at Pines, lunch is a greater lesson. See below for a peek into what lunchtime looks like.  Chef considers her menu vegetarian-friendly. There are many main and side dishes that are meat-free.
