    1. brown rice & wholemeal bread

    3. vegetables
    4. meat & others shall be made available in main meals.
  2. Vegetables and fruit shall be served in the following amounts:
    1. Vegetables: At least 2 heaped dessert spoons
    2. Fruit: At least ½ serving. Examples of ½ serving of fruit are ½ small apple and ½ wedge of watermelon.
  3. Use lean meat when preparing food.
  4. Using less oil and salt in the preparation of food.
  5. Wholemeal bread (in addition to cakes & biscuits) to be made available at all Afternoon Teabreak to encourage healthy eating, and not selective consumption of cakes & biscuits.

Please also be informed that during Student Care Hours, students will not be able to purchase flavoured drinks from the canteen vendors. They should have their water bottles with them, and top up their drinking water from the water coolers located in the canteen (This is another key component of HMSP)Healthy eating habits start from young and from home.

We hope parents will continue to work with us to educate their child on healthy eating and having more vegetables and fruits.
