A balanced and healthy meal everyday!

Our partnership with Chartwells, (part of the Compass Group, the world’s largest catering food specialist) provides our students with healthy meal options and great tasting food that help build strong bodies, sharp minds and establishing the foundation for a long, healthier life. Their team of passionate chefs and qualified dieticians work closely with the school’s management, nurses and parent committee to create menus that are tasty, fun and nutritious.

At IFS, a morning snack and lunch are included in the canteen fees of the Kindergarten and Elementary School students.*

In the Middle School canteen, students can choose between a Western and an Asian menu at the self-service counter. They can also opt for an appetizer and a soup.

The lunch menus include:

  • a starter ;
  • a dish with proteins (meat, fish) ;
  • a side dish (vegetables and carbohydrates);
  • a dessert (dairy, pastry, etc…) and a fruit.

A balanced diet is the key to being fit and healthy, it is above all about encouraging students to eat and taste a bit of everything. Don’t to forget to hydrate, particularly in tropical countries.

* Except on Fridays when only a morning snack is provided to Elementary School students.

Lunchbox [UPDATED FOR 2021-2022]

Students from all levels (new) may choose to bring a lunchbox in lieu of the lunch and the morning snack (for Kindergarten and Elementary) provided by the school. This choice is possible one week before the start of the school year in September (all parents will receive a message on this matter), and for the remainder of the year, at the time of registration in Eduka.

The choice applies for a minimum of one term, and any changes during the year will have to be requested exclusively from the Eduka portal, icon “Emails and contact” by clicking on “Lunchbox/Canteen update”, before the end of the current term to take effect in the following term: before December 31 for a change at the beginning of January (second term), and before March 31 for a change on April 1 (third term). Please click here to access the rules and regulations for the lunchbox. A FAQ is also available: click here.
