Healthy, nutritious lunches on a pre-paid system are available at Equilibria from Monday to Thursday. The school emphasizes a healthy lifestyle and the purpose of the system is to ensure that students have at least one balanced healthy meal per day. It also limits the groceries that students need to buy and ensure that unused fresh produce does not get wasted.
The meals are prepared by Equilibria’s House Manager and Chef and include wholesome salads, tasty vegetables and various meat-dishes. The emphasis is on fresh, nourishing meals that are prepared with quality ingredients. Students lunch on the school’s premises after class (12h30). The meals are served buffet style and plates and cutlery are provided. Meals are booked per term and paid in advance.
Costs: The cost per meal is R60.00 and includes the following:
- Fresh fruit juice
- One meat dish (such as Chicken or beef casserole, ‘bobotie’, meatballs or lasagna)
- One or two starches such as pasta, potatoes, rice or fresh rolls.
- Freshly cooked vegetables and/or salads or fruits.
- Dessert once a week
- Plates and cutlery.
Breakfast and supper:
For breakfast and supper, students are encouraged to eat wholesome, easy-to-prepare foods like fresh fruit, muesli, yogurt, salads and whole wheat sandwiches. They are taught to limit their intake of fast food or ready-made convenient meals.
