【Oh爸媽:寄宿學校攻略】健康飲食在學校
「我想女兒在英國寄宿學校時食得健康。英國學校在健康飲食方面是否做得夠好?」
 
我相信不少人對英國人,尤其學校的飲食習慣都會先入為主,覺得他們很喜歡食Fish and Chips等煎炸食物。
 
不過近年來這個趨勢有了改變。英國整體對健康飲食的關注逐漸提高,媒體亦針對此題材廣泛報導。同時,私立寄宿學校的家長對孩子在校內的飲食有所要求,在各方壓力和需求推動之下,學校不得不正面處理學生飲食問題,並推出多種營養均衡的餐單。
 
不少學校重金禮聘城中名廚主理學生飲食,設計學生營養餐單。所以,以前學校飯堂經常出現的雪藏飯盒和加熱食物已成過去。另外學校亦關注人道處理食物,並與食物供應商洽商,為可持續發展的生態出一分力。
 
而家長所關心的學生健康飲食,則與食物的來源有密切關係。學校通常會選用本地食材供應商,並確保會在英國指定地區取得最優質的食材,例如芝士。英國學校選用的肉類和奶類食物都獲得Red Tractor認證(全英國最權威的食物安全計劃)。
 
除了食材,英國學校亦十分重視食物的製作過程和每個細節。例如廚師通常都會選用芥花籽油煮食,用橄欖油醃製食物並以香草代替食鹽調味。煮食方法如此健康,各位家長大可放心。
 
正餐以外,當然不少得蔬菜水果。學校致力確保同學們每日遵守「五份蔬果」的進食原則。Dinning hall經常提供新鮮水果和蔬菜。
 
一日食五餐蔬果會否很難實行?其實只要稍花心思,例如早餐吃水果沙律、午飯後吃個蘋果批、晚餐後吃個水果,要吸收充足的纖維絕對不難。
 
Uppingham就是其中一所極著重健康飲食的學校。學校以舍內用膳的方式增強學生之間的歸屬感,氣氛好像一家人一樣。而學校亦積極詢問家長對學生飲食上的意見,並於每週推出一款新菜式讓同學試食。因此,同學也有機會在學校找到熟悉的亞洲菜式呢!
 
最重要的,是學校為同學們提供廣泛選擇,讓他們可以食得健康,身在英國也能維持健康的個人飲食習慣。素食者亦會有相應的無肉餐單,並可向學校廚師提出他們對素食餐單的要求。

所以即使去英國留學,健康飲食絕對無難度。

#School Analysis
Considering its reputation, Oundle School may not catch up to Eton, Wycombe Abbey and else top elite schools. However, Oundle’s academic performance is among the best in the United Kingdom. As a traditional top boarding school, Oundle pays huge attentions to student’s holistic development, by providing them diversified extra-curricular activities. In addition, Oundle still implements the House Dining System, which is rarely remaining among uk boarding schools. It is also one of the reasons why Hong Kong parents making a beeline for.
The ratio of teachers and students in Bromsgrove School is 1:8, which is lower than the average among uk boarding schools. In addition, according to my school visit experience, Bromsgrove has the best facilities, that it is undoubtedly one of the best three campuses in the UK. Besides, Bromsgrove spares no expense to provide students comfortable environment, it even invests on the nearby hotel and transfers it into dormitories. As a result, students can possess the “5-star enjoyment” on campus. To conclude, Bromsgrove is definitely a prospective and globalised uk boarding school.
Brighton College is Britain’s premier private school and one of the Hong Kong parents’ favourites. To understand a boarding school, despite of looking at its educational tenet, diversified extra-curricular activities and academics results, it is essential to observe the boldness of the principal. 10 years ago, after Mr. Richard Cairns taking up the duty of the Brighton College’s principal, the school ranking raises from the 150th to the top 20th. In addition to promoting educational reformation, Mr Cairns is such a good principal, that he still strives for maintaining students’ curiosity at the same time.
