Food from the school kitchen
All the food served at Morning star is fresh, nutritious and healthy and is prepared daily on the premises. Breakfast of cooked porridge is provided every day for children who have the meal service.

Breakfast is available up until 07h45, after which time the kitchen is closed until snacks of sandwiches, fruit or juice are presented at around 10h00.

Lunch is served at about 12h00, depending on the child’s group. Lunch consists of a balanced meal of protein, vegetables, starch and fruit.

An afternoon snack of a sandwich and Rooibos tea or juice is offered at about 14h30. Fresh fruit and filtered water is on offer throughout the afternoon for children in After-care.

Drinking Water at Morning Star
In the kitchen we have an 'under sink' reverse osmosis water filter system so that all the water consumed by the children and staff, whether this be as straight water or in juice, tea and food preparation has been filtered five times and is free of any impurities.
