Healthy Alternatives

Good for you food doesn’t HAVE to be boring.

HEALTHY ALTERNATIVES is a Program utilized by Oryan Catering specifically for day-care centres, school lunch programs, and children’s summer camp programs. Oryan Catering utilizes wholesome ingredients to insure that children have healthy choices and balanced entrees and snacks that meet their nutritional needs. Our meals are designed to have colour, texture and taste appeal. Our meals are prepared with fresh ingredients using local sourced vegetables, fruit and meat and organic when possible.

To provide children with a variety of food experiences we offer several ethnic/multicultural dishes included in the three week hot lunch. Our meals are low in sodium and sugar and include selections from each of the food groups in the Canada Food Guide, and adhere to the requirements of the Day Nursery Act and the Ontario Safe School Nutritional guidelines.

We use whole grain, whole wheat and multigrain breads, pastas, and rice whenever possible.
