Food for Thought: Nutritious Lunches & Snacks

Your child requires a nutritious, balanced diet to help them grow and develop properly. We have partnered with a Registered Nutritionist to ensure your child has a nutritious snack every day as well as an option of a hot, healthy midday meal. Our menu features a wide variety of dishes that are made fresh in-house from local ingredients whenever possible.

Lawrence Park School understands that a special diet can complicate meals. If your child has special dietary needs due to medical or cultural reasons, please alert us in advance. We will do our best to accommodate your family.
