Cuisine

As a French immersion school, it is only fitting that we would offer well-rounded meals and snacks as part of our offerings!  Atlas has a school cook on-site daily, who takes great pride in nourishing our growing children every day.  The menu is developed weekly by the director, and we are always open to suggestions for new recipes.

Our Food

We serve organic milk, alternative non dairy milk or water with meals and snacks. Additionally, we generally have almond milk, rice milk, or another “alternative milk” available. Children under 12 months of age will only be served the expressed breast milk or infant formula you provide, in addition to water.
When at all possible, we serve fresh organic, seasonal produce. Occasionally we will serve an item that is not organic, but the “dirty dozen” items will always be organic. In general, we opt to serve “whole food”, and steer away from nutritionally empty foods and pre-packaged items. We are a nut-free facility.

Special Diets

If your child has any special diet requirements or allergies, please let us know. We will make sure that your child does not receive any foods they are allergic to. Please check the menu in advance to determine if your child will be able to have what is on the menu each day. If your child has allergies or does not eat what we are serving, we ask that you provide an alternative. We discourage children from bringing sack lunches from home, as this can create problems between students (Jane would rather have what John brought from home, and then everyone wants it!). We strive to offer nutritious and varied food offerings, to best keep everyone happy!
