    Our Food Philosophy

    Educating the whole child at St. Mark’s includes preparing our students for learning and establishing healthy habits. A healthy lifestyle combines exercise, rest and recreation, and a balanced diet to keep the mind and body strong and capable of achieving the goals each student has for today and tomorrow.

    At St. Mark’s, we recognize that eating habits, healthy or otherwise, are established in childhood; therefore, learning about nutrition is an important part of the curriculum for a child. Growing a child’s interest in food selections is a marathon, not a sprint, and we partner with our parents to nurture these habits in our students. We believe food that enhances learning contains an appropriate balance of protein, carbohydrates, and fat, limits sodium and processed sugars, contains fruit and vegetables, and moderates portion size relative to the person consuming the food.
