Food Nutrition

The house dining is an important feature of Dehradun hills academy’s pastoral care. Meal times are a combination of formal lunches where visitors are welcomed and more informal suppers and breakfasts which all offer a good chance for staff to engage with pupils and for pupils to feel at home.

Our school kitchen has in-house catering team where they take pleasure in designing menus and delivering wholesome meals. There is a gracious and orderly atmosphere adding the dining hall as our students take their seats before meals, beginning with prayers.

Our goal is to provide boarders with meals that are nutritious, varied and enjoyable. Using locally and ethically produced food, we balance this with the feedback we get from pupils and their parents. Organic milk, home-grown vegetables, free ranging poultry eggs and cereals provided for the mess are sourced as much as possible from our own farms. From time to time we invite diet specialists to come and work with children planning their food menus. Each week we choose a day to focus on Ayurveda diet for body detox.

We ensure that the students are offered to try various cuisines, from Indian to Continental to Chinese to South Indian food.
