We help schools create a learning-friendly dining room that motivate children to eat together and eat better. Like the classroom the environment needs to be conducive to on task behaviour – i.e. socialising and eating.
This includes creating a seating plan, so children know who they are sitting with, where and when. It includes children being responsible for wiping tables and clearing away their own rubbish and it includes children waiting for each other to finish before leaving so they eat mindfully.
Most school dining rooms are very noisy and chaotic. Children feel rushed, they have to queue for far too long and often cannot sit with their friends. It becomes an unfriendly and unwelcoming place that no one wants to go to.
