One special aspect of New Day School is our vegan diet. We serve a fresh hot lunch each day as well as two snacks, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Following the principles of yoga, a healthy diet is the foundation to a healthy body and mind. In all foods served, we avoid artificial preservatives and colorings and encourage unprocessed, organic foods. We provide a balanced diet, with an emphasis on whole grains, fresh fruits, vegetables, beans, legumes, nuts and seeds. Also according to the yogic diet, we do not include egg, onion, garlic, or mushroom in our diet. New Day children enjoy a garden-to-plate program through the experience of growing their own organic produce. With the school’s garden teachers, the children are led in planting, tending and harvesting the school’s kitchen garden.
