Hot meal program
Elementary students at EMI Blainville are given the option of bringing their own lunch or ordering from our hot lunch program. For Daycare and Kindergarten students, hot meal program is mandatory. Healthy and balanced hot lunches are provided 5 days a week to all interested students. All lunches are nutritionally sound and follow the guidelines of Canada’s Food Guide for healthy eating. They contain a balance of proteins, carbohydrates and vegetables.
The meals are offered with the choice of juice, milk or water. There is also choice of yogourt, stewed apples or prepared fruit. For dessert, a cookie, muffin or small cake is served. The menu is constantly adjusted and updated in order to make sure that the children enjoy their meal and are satisfied. For further information concerning the menu, please do not hesitate to call our office. If your child is not registered with the hot meals, it is possible to reserve meals with the secretary on Friday for the following week. You can proceed by email. Students bringing their own lunch are encouraged to provide ice packs in their lunch box to keep their lunch fresh.
* Please do not send chips, chocolate, candies or junk food (*1st, 2nd, 3rd ingredient is ‘sugar’) for lunch or snacks. Students are not permitted to consume unhealthy snacks, as they are strongly encouraged to be aware of their dietary needs. Please note that EMI Blainville does not provide microwaves in the cafeteria. You may send hot meals in a thermos.
