A growing body of research shows that the school food system affects the dietary behaviors of youth and is associated with obesity. For that reason, HIS provides Early Years students with healthy dietary choices and helps students learn about healthy food choices. Students have access to healthy meals in the cafeteria that serves a variety of food and beverages for breakfast, snack time, and lunch time. Older students have the choice to enroll in this service or abide by the food policy developed by the health office.
