The Food Services staff keeps abreast of trends in food and nutrition, following the government’s My Plate (which replaced the old food pyramid) recommendations.
All students eat lunch at Breck (students in half-day preschool and kindergarten programs are dismissed after lunch), and lunch is included in Breck tuition.
