Welcome to Lunch House

Lunch House, a healthy eating hub that provides opportunities for schools to promote improved health and well-being in their communities.  

Teamed with technology, Lunch House would like to offer schools throughout South Africa the opportunity to transform current tuck shops into a first of its kind, forward thinking, nutritional hub providing children with important opportunities to make healthier eating choices every day. The school environment provides a vital context not only for children to learn about healthy eating and healthy lifestyles, but also for them to put knowledge into practice.

Further to a nutritional menu and a wide offering of convenient services for parents, our concept is fueled by a user friendly online portal for parents to manage their children’s accounts and more importantly, their diet. 

Lunch House is taking innovation one step further by using software that will make every attempt to be a cashless environment, adding further convenience and controls for your parent body, limiting risk of bullying and lost lunch money.

The introduction of change, even if it is change for the greater good, creates resistance in some people.  The change needs to happen and Lunch House will gladly take on the responsibility of communicating this to your parent body. 

Why is a healthy tuck shop important?

  • Children learn in school about good nutrition and how to make healthy eating choices.  The school environment needs to properly support this education by ensuring that food provided on the school grounds are in line with the accepted guidelines for children’s nutrition.
  • Children need access to healthy options.  Research shows that having lots of opportunities as a child to make healthy food choices has a big impact on whether healthy eating becomes a life-long habit. 
  • People often assume healthy means more expensive however Lunch House has developed ways to provide affordable good food.
  • Good food equates to good health.  Children are most vulnerable to poor nutrition, both because they cannot control their sources of food and because their bodies are still growing.  Good food is a basic requirement for the growing of healthy bodies and it is essential if children are going to learn well.  As the seminal places of learning, schools play a critical role in ensuring that children have healthy bodies and minds.
