HealthWise Choices

Eating healthy is the main goal for most students across Canada. Lawson Hall at Hillfield Strathallan College features vegetarian options for both breakfast and lunch. We provide a diverse and nutritionally balanced menu developed on-site by our Chef, in consultation with our Registered Dietitian, to ensure the availability of a wide variety of HealthWise Choices every day.

We provide fresh, nutritious foods and continually research and test new recipes to ensure they meet Canadian standards for healthy eating.

HealthWise Choices menu items have been tested for nutritional value, great taste and accuracy by our Chefs and registered dietitians.

Our HealthWise Choices program identifies foods that are:

  • high on whole grain goodness
  • naturally low in sodium
  • prepared using healthy cooking techniques
  • right-size portions

Our made-from-scratch approach includes roasting deli meats on-site and preparing soups fresh daily using low-sodium, gluten-free, MSG-free soup bases and fresh, locally sourced ingredients. We do not use pre-packaged or processed entrées, which avoids unnecessary preservatives since made-from-scratch meals are made and eaten the same day. We never use canned, freeze-dried or bagged soup. This helps ensure the availability of a wide variety of healthy choices every day.

Every month we publish healthy eating tips to help stimulate conversations on healthier eating topics. 

Located in Hamilton, ON, Hillfield Strathallan College is a Canadian independent, co-educational day school.
