Snack Time Update

January was a busy month in the kitchens here at BVIS. Before the Tet break the catering team prepared twelve new, healthier snacks for the children in the Primary School to try. This project followed feedback from some children who said that they were ‘bored’ with the usual snack time offerings.

On hearing this, the Student Council quickly sprang into action and surveyed the majority of children; they concluded that yes, the majority were bored with the snacks! The next step saw the Student Council research what healthy snacks were being served in schools around the world and then they had a meeting with Ms Huong, our catering manager.

This long process continued with taste tests which were then followed by more taste tests! We tasted a lot of food! Finally, we were ready for our friends to try the new things. In January, three days a week Ms Huong prepared a new snack for the children to try.

For every new snack, we surveyed the school. This involved a lot of counting! We also asked the other children what they thought and they were very happy to share their thoughts and ideas on how to change the items, to make them even better. For example, they asked for sauce with the grilled sausage and they also asked if the jelly could be flavoured. The Student Council is again working with Ms Huong to make these small changes.

We are confident that the children are now happy with the snacks being served during their morning break, however, should you have any specific feedback from your child then we would very much like to hear from you. Please email any feedback, queries or questions to snackfeedback@bvisvietnam.com.

Our bank of healthy snacks now includes:

·      Frozen yogurt & fruit puree; made with strawberries / mango / raspberry / vanilla / cocoa

·      Jelly & fruit; naturally flavoured jelly with real fruit pieces of dragon fruit / mango / peach

·      Savoury muffins; flavours include sweet potato / pumpkin, we are looking to add apple & banana / apple & cinnamon / Pear & banana

·      Banana sandwich; yummy!

·      Popcorn; we are experimenting with additional toppings.

·      Baked sweet potato; very natural, with no added ingredients and a good source of fiber and carbohydrate

·      Banana pancakes; naturally sweet for a treat!
