As the old saying goes, 'We Are What We Eat'. It's a scientifically proven fact that our food choices affect our health. Every cell in our body was created from the food we eat, the water we drink and the air we breathe. In addition to nourishing our bodies, food also affects the quality of our lives, our appearance, weight, moods, energy, the ageing process and our overall health and well being.
MySchool believes that the best way to stay healthy is by offering our students a balanced menu composed mainly of wholesome organic products. In order to provide our children with all the nutrients to meet their physical and mental needs, the Biolinea company, which has its own laboratories, carries out the nutritional assessment of the menus. These have been analysed by a Specialist in Human Nutrition and Dietetics Guadalupe Moreno Hernández, in order to determine the composition and value of the food consumed in the daily diet.
MyFood is adapted to the needs and requirements of every child. Special menus are designed for celiacs, vegetarians and those who are lactose intolerant. We adapt to every child making sure we cover all essential nutritional needs. As stated in RD 126/2015 and Regulation 1169/2011, the school has information about allergies and food intolerances available upon request.
MyFood menus are home-cooked at MySchool premises by our own cook, Jordi Munné, using only fresh local products mainly from our own organic vegetable garden grown by MySchool students. This also provides the children the enriching experience of planting and growing their own vegetables while enabling them to learn about seasonal products, insects, natural symbiotic processes, and the importance of caring for the most essential things in live.
Once a week we cook dishes from a particular country or nation, thus learning to appreciate different flavours and tastes and understanding the diversity of cultures that inhabit the planet.
