At Borrisokane Community College we promote Healthy Eating in the school canteen where only healthy food options are available. We have received support from the Irish Heart Foundation to develop menus in the school canteen.
To promote healthy eating for students Home Economics is taught to all students in First Year and Transition Year. Practical cooking classes where healthy food is prepared form a major part of these programmes.
We encourage families to consider Healthy Options when cooking at home. The following links will give you some healthy recipes for Breakfast and Lunch.
