The school canteen (or the 'tuck shop') is an integral part of the institution and helps in molding the food habits of children. We believe that it exerts a vital influence on them. The school tuck shop at ATS Valley aims to wean the students away from the prevailing culture of fast foods and steers them towards making healthy food choices. We use organically grown vegetables from the school garden and whole wheat flour procured from the market to prepare snacks for the children. Packaged aerated drinks (soft drinks), potato chips, chocolates, instant noodles etc are not served in the canteen. Students are allowed to buy the snacks against coupons because no one is allowed to carry cash to the school. The food preferences that a child acquires are expected to stay with them for a lifetime and we strive to ensure that the choices they make are healthy.
