Healthy eating for healthy learning is the dictum followed at Bodhi. The School lays a great deal of emphasis on ensuring the health, hygiene, and nutrition requirements of its students and is FSSAI certified. At breakfast, the students gather in the dining hall for their first nourishing meal of the day. A variety of multi-cuisine dishes for the students are served across breakfast, lunch, and Goodbye drinks.
The menu of the school is supervised by a qualified dietician who approves the menu suggested by the food committee comprising of teachers, students, a chef & core management team.
The Food Committee meeting is held regularly. The agenda for the meeting is to collaborate, reflect and take feedback from various stakeholders of the school which is headed by the School Leadership Team. Students are an integral part of the meeting and suggest unprejudiced feedback on the meals served at school.
The chef suggests changes in the menu if any. He too gives the administrative possibilities of the changes suggested. The meeting also ensures that the applicable regulations are complied with, which include, sanitary rounds by the doctor, medical checks of the kitchen staff, raw material supply standards, and sampling of food. This periodic and cohesive contribution makes sure that the meals served at school fulfill all essential requirements.
The entire teaching fraternity dines with students and the students’ eating habits and dining room etiquette are supervised by the class teachers.
The mealtime in the school is indeed not a “break time”, but a sanctimonious ritual and an opportunity for students to pray together, break bread together & bond with their teachers and peers.
