Food & Nutrition
As food plays an undeniably critical role in a child's emotional and physical development, much emphasis is placed on the choice of ingredients, quality, taste, sanitation and diversity. The weekly menu is tailored rather than recurring, with diversification at the core considering students and staff from different parts of the world.
The kitchen, in other words referred to as the epicentre of the Hebron home, is a place where food is cooked with love and served with a smile.
Lunch is predominantly Indian, and suppers are from various countries, giving students a taste of the world and, most importantly, of home. However, some things haven't changed in over a century, keeping the Hebron tradition alive, such as Cheese Toast and Sooji porridge for Prayer Breakfast on Tuesdays and Sunday Roast for Lunch on alternate weeks. To encourage vegetable-diet, a completely vegetarian day called "Meatless Friday" was recently introduced focussing on regional vegetarian delicacies from across India.
Hebron values student inputs and suggestions, thus the Kitchen committee, composed of staff and student representatives, serves as a channel for sharing community inputs, and their suggestions are highly regarded and applied.
