A healthy, balanced and varied diet plan is implemented and meals are prepared with healthy local ingredients where possible. Our weekly nutrition plan includes locally produced bread, fresh seasonal fruit, legumes, vegetables, wholesome Cypriot dishes and homemade Cypriot specialties like yogurt with honey and rice pudding.
Our objective is to teach a good relationship with quality food, enjoying food and treats in moderation and realizing the beneficial effects of a balanced healthy diet. On our last day, we will make “souvlakia” outdoors with the children, celebrating Cypriot traditions! Sweets (usually ice cream) will be offered in moderation.
