Eating Healthily

 Merchiston-Castle-School-Healthing Eating - Nutrition

You only have to look at the array of breads on offer with the soup at lunchtime to know we take food seriously!

Feeding your son’s body is every bit as important as feeding his mind. After all, his days will be packed with learning, sport and activities, not to mention the important business of growing.

The team of chefs from Chartwells Independent, our caterers, source the finest ingredients, locally wherever practical, to ensure your son enjoys a choice of appetising, nutritious and delicious meals throughout the day.

There is a daily vegetarian option and we use Halal meat wherever possible. If your son has special dietary requirements or allergies, the General Manager is very happy to meet with you to discuss these.

Nutrition plays a key role in performance, whether of the brain whilst studying or the body during elite sports. The catering team works closely with key Academic staff, Academy programmes and sports coaches, as well as with the pupil committee, to ensure that the menus meet everyone’s needs.
