Healthy Eating

At Ajman Academy, we believe Healthy Bodies = Healthy Minds and encourage all students to have a healthy diet and drink plenty of water. All meals are Halal, nutritionally balanced and are prepared locally, using locally sourced ingredients and produce wherever possible.

Ajman Academy is proud to partner with Chef Yasser, our school food provider, for the second year.  Chef Yasser brings to school fresh and healthy meals that are prepared on site by their chefs.  Both snack and lunch meals are well balanced and they offer a choice of meals for students daily. Please click here to view the new menu.
For Secondary students and parents, our Chef Yasser Kiosk located in the school foyer offers healthy dining and snack options for all visitors.

Grade 1 – Grade 5 students eat in the primary cafeteria. All children are supervised by class teachers. If you require any special dietary requirements, due to food allergies, please let your teacher know in writing, and this will be passed on to the catering staff, the school nurse and the Primary Principal.

A few tips for students to remember at lunchtime:

•Make sure you have clean hands!

•Wait quietly at your table in the Cafeteria. (Your teacher will show you where this is on your first day). 

•Make sure you sit in the same seat on the same table each day, please.

•If you do not have a plate of food, you should ask the Year 6 student at your table to help get one for you.

•You should try to eat as much as you can from your plate.

•When you have finished, you may go to get more food, salad or bread.

•If you are not taking salad or bread, then you must stay in your seat!

•Everyone at your table should help to tidy the table before you leave.

Please remember that parents are always welcome to use the canteen facilities and enjoy lunch or a quick snack while at school. We welcome any comments and suggestions that you may have to make our service better.

GENERAL PRINCIPLES

HEALTHY EATING

The school has a responsibility to ensure that wherever possible we provide healthy eating choices for all students. We regularly work to ensure that healthy eating is promoted within the classroom and children understand the food choices that we give them.

ALLERGIES AND DIETARY RESTRICTIONS

No food served at Ajman Academy should contain MSG.

It is extremely important that you officially inform the school of any allergies or special dietary restrictions associated with your child(ren). Please fill in the details in the area on the form which requests such information. These details will be added to the school’s Management Information System.

WATER

Water dispensers are located throughout the school. All students are encouraged to drink water regularly. Students may bring a clearly labelled bottle of water into school to keep in their classrooms and drink from during lessons.

LUNCH PROGRAMME

CATERING FOR YOUR CHILDREN IN PRE-KG, KG1 & KG2

Children in Pre-KG, KG1 & KG 2 are served their morning snack in their classrooms. Lunch is served in the Kindergarten cafeteria located between the KG1 and KG2 pods. A menu for this lunch is posted on the School Communicator in the ‘Resources’ section. Parents are encouraged to read this.

Wherever possible, parents are encouraged to send their children into school having had breakfast.

CATERING FOR YOUR CHILDREN IN GRADE 1 TO GRADE 5

Children eat lunch and snacks in the cafeteria. The children are accompanied to the cafeteria by either their class teacher or teacher assistant. They will remain with them for the duration of their time in the Cafeteria. There is a choice of Western, Arabic and non-meat food each day. There is also a salad bar. The portions served are small to discourage waste, but children may go up to the counter as many times as they wish. Water is served with lunch.

CATERING FOR YOUR CHILDREN IN GRADE 6 TO GRADE 12

Secondary students eat lunch and snacks in their respective cafeterias. Secondary students have the option to pay by term or pay daily using cash.   The children are accompanied to the cafeteria by either their class teacher and will remain with them for the duration of their time there. There is a choice of Western, Arabic and non-meat food each day. Salad and snack items available to purchase.
