Healthy food & lifestyle for our youth

Ever find yourselves sitting at work, fidgeting while trying to fight off the annoying thought that your children might be eating unhealthy at school? Worry no more. The Slices team is here to ensure your kids develop and sustain impressive eating habits that are bound to make them healthier and stronger individuals.

Medical research in the United States and the United Kingdom around the topics of nutritional and developmental science has shown that children who are exposed to a healthy lifestyle —including healthy food from an early age — are more likely to blossom into healthy adults. Slices is convinced that offering well-balanced meals and educating the children on the benefits of a wholesome diet promote children’s overall well-being. This is not limited to their physical well-being, but also their mood, concentration skills, and energy levels, which will all be boosted.

Background

“The early years are when you give your child a foundation for establishing a proper diet. If kids learn about the importance of eating healthy early in their lives, they will not have to relearn as an adult.” ~ Nicole Henderson

Frequently asked questions about Slices

  • How does the Slices Payment system work?

    Students can register themselves at the school dining room. We have a team in place to assist them.

    Students are allowed to consume the amount credited to their own account. Slices sets a limit to use up to AED80, which leaves AED 20 in their card as a safety net. If they have not reloaded their cards at this point, they will still be able to use the card but at this stage their card will be held at the service counter.

  • How can we be sure that the money transferred to Slices credits my kids account with a clear distinction between snack time and lunchtime?

    Separate accounts with separate balances are attached to a single card, one for snacks and the other for lunchtime. Parents can load money onto each as they wish.

  • How can we be sure that the money transferred to Slices credits a specific child’s account when we have more than one child?

    You may visit us onsite at the school with your child’s individual cards and load each with cash or cheque. Alternatively in the case of a money transfer, please advise us via e-mail.

  • If the card is stolen/lost will they return the card full with the amount that was on the card?

    In the case of a lost or stolen card a student will be charged AED20, which is the cost of the card.

  • How can parents contact Slices?

    The best way to contact us is via e-mail either on schoolfood@slices.ae or feedback@slices.ae.

  • Can we see the menus that are offered by term?

    At slices we work on a 21day menu cycle. We will provide the menu of the following week to the school one week before.

  • My child is allergic to certain ingredients in food

    Please inform us when you register your child for Slices snacks and or lunch. The menu that we sent out on a weekly basis is clearly labeled with allergen information, and parents can decide to send in a packed lunch instead when a meal doesn’t suit the child. If an allergy is severe, then please also come and talk to us so that we are fully aware and can work around that.

Testimonials

What others have to say about us.

“Salim was never interested in vegetables, particularly broccoli. We always struggled to feed him a healthy balanced meal. With lunches provided by the Slices team, Salim began taking a gradual liking to veggies. We couldn’t be happier.”

“Ensuring that our students have easy access to fresh, nutritious, balanced meals is a high priority for us at Cranleigh. We are delighted to see that the majority of our students now eat their meals on campus and do not bring lunch boxes in.”
