Dining at BCIS Canteen

Let your taste buds come alive in BCIS Canteen's vast and varied dining selections. Cafeteria-style dining with international and Asian choices, pizza and pasta corner, grab & go snacks, can all be found right on campus.


Eating Healthy

  • Read the menus before entering the dining hall, so you plan ahead for what you will eat, and are less likely to grab too much or unhealthy choices spontaneously.
  • Read the nutrition facts for chosen menu items online or at the nutrition kiosks conveniently located in each dining hall to help you make overall balanced healthy choices.
  • Eat breakfast to keep your metabolism revved up for the day and prevent overeating later in the day.
  • Learn what a "normal" portion is and stick to that serving size.
  • Eat only one entrée per meal.
  • Learn how much you can comfortably eat, so you don’t take too much, skipping dessert if already satisfied.
  • Avoid lots of rich foods in the same meal or day, such as fried foods, fatty meats (burger, sausage or pepperoni, for example), gravy, cream soups or sauces, cheese, butter, sour cream, mayonnaise, salad dressings, cream cheese, and desserts.
  • Avoid excessive amounts of highly sweetened soft drinks, sports and energy drinks, and fruit juice blends. These should be an occasional splurge. Choose water, low fat milk, and 100% fruit juice.

Daily Diet Recommendation

  • It is important to have breakfast. It helps you to stay active and concentrate at school. A bowl of cereal with milk and fresh or stewed fruit is a great starter for the day.
  • Balance your diet with emphasis on a variety of fruits and vegetables, half of your grains as whole, and a small serving each of protein and dairy foods.
  • Snacks are an important part of a healthy diet. Make sure that the afternoon snack is nutritious, not just high in energy. For instance, a sandwich with a glass of milk, cereal and fruit, or a bowl of soup and toast.
  • Peer pressure to eat particular "trendy" foods among youngsters is strong. You can eat these kinds of foods occasionally, such as at parties, special events or when the rest of the family enjoys them.
