School Lunch: Fuel for Learning

Eco-Friendly School Food Service

Nenia's Eco-Friendly School Food Service

School lunch programs play a vital role in molding children's dietary habits. However, they're often seen merely as a convenient substitute for packed lunches, providing a single meal. NENIA's eco-friendly school food service aims to foster food literacy and create a safe food environment.

GMO-free school lunches

Our GMO-free school lunches prioritize non-GMO domestic ingredients, certified traditional food, prohibit food additives, and are produced in HACCP-certified facilities.

How to choose
eco-friendly school lunch processed foods?

  • First, Assessing the Required Documentation

    While it may seem burdensome, the nature of processed foods necessitates a clear understanding of origin, ingredients, and certifications.

  • Second, Detailed Ingredient Verification

    We exclude those ingredients, like sugar, pepper, chocolate, and natural spices, that can't be substituted and look for overuse of imported products

  • Third, Diligent Scrutiny for Chemically Synthesized Additives

    These are often used for convenience in food production and distribution, as well as cost reduction, but can have a negative impact on children's health.

  • Last, Staying True To the Ingredients

    Cornstarch for sweetening, baking enhancers, beef flavoring extracts, and others are often used as a way to compensate for taste, flavor, or color. Hence, we need to be mindful of what we should be feeding our children.

So, what should we eat?

In the school lunch market, processed foods account for about 40% of purchases across five major categories. Quite a significant amount. If we aim to achieve an eco-friendly school lunch through the purchase of primary agricultural and livestock products, but fill it with imported goods, chemicals, synthetic additives, and sauces, we undermine its value and purpose. Hence, being selective about processed foods is key to ensuring the safety and healthiness of our children's meals. We firmly believe that providing a healthy and safe school lunch is not only fundamental but serves as the cornerstone of our education, paving the way for a healthier, brighter future.
