Lunch & Nutrition
Developing good eating habits is an outcome of the Alberta Health curriculum. All students are encouraged to bring healthy snacks to eat during breaks. We encourage families to avoid sending foods listed on Alberta Health Services Nutrition Guidelines for Children and Youth “choose least often” list. Foods from this category are very low in nutrients and higher in calories, fat, sugar and salt.
Rideau Park provides a supervised lunch time program for those students in Grades 1-6 who cannot go home for lunch. Parents of these students must register for the program and pay a yearly lunch program fee, in monthly installments. Paid Lunchroom Supervisors provide inside and outside supervision during the lunch time. Information about the lunch program and an application form are sent home in early September.
