Cafeteria

At the Metropolitan School of Panama we aim develop the whole child, focusing not only on academics but the physical and emotional well being of each student. The MET provides every student with balanced and healthy meals that include a wide variety of fresh vegetables and fruit, that not only keep our children's mind sharp and ready for learning, but helps them gain healthy habits that will last a lifetime.

Daily Snack and Meals

Our school’s Nutrition Program is overseen by a Nutritionist that takes care in designing menus with our students’ needs and preferences in mind. Our  team offers a daily snack and lunch made entirely on-site, with a varied offering and simple recipes that reduce the use of processed foods, conservatives and refined sugars.

Each lunch includes a warm meal accompanied by a soup of the day, an extensive salad bar with at least five options of fresh vegetables, and prepared salads to choose from. Additionally, the bar offers fresh fruit and natural fruit juice.

During special occasions, the menu may find itself modified to add meals from other cultures, or traditional Panamanian dishes.

Dietary Needs and Accommodations

We strive to offer meal options to meet students' individual dietary needs. In addition to our regular meal plan, we offer daily vegetarian, gluten-free and dairy-free menu options, as well as modified options for students with sensory needs. 

If a child has any dietary needs, we inform the school's nutritionist upon admission. Parents may also schedule an appointment with our school’s nutritionist at any time to work together in developing an individual nutritional plan for the child.
