Healthy eating

SwissCanonica is aligned with Clarion’s mission to nourish our students. SwissCanonica provides delicious, healthy, nutritive food which is essential for the physical health and fitness of the children.

Students have a choice to bring lunch and snacks or purchase food from our canteen provider, SwissCononica. Please help us establish healthy eating habits by sending healthy food and snacks; keep in mind we are a nut- free campus.

 SwissCanonica is known locally as Canonica Restaurant & Catering LLC        (www.swisscanonica-uae.com) and has been operating in Dubai since 2015.  They offer high quality school catering to multiple schools in Dubai, as well as offering private and corporate catering.  The local Dubai branch is part of the SwissCanonica Group, which has been running Food and Beverage operations in Geneva Airport since 1948.

They have a food production laboratory in Geneva, as well as one in Zurich and a Central Kitchen in Dubai that handles operations in U.A.E. In addition, they own and operate their own chocolate laboratory and Swiss chocolate label, Canonica, which is gaining a strong reputation for its hand-crafted chocolate.  Canonica chocolates can be found on First Class and Business Class of Emirates Airlines and are served at Nobu The Palm.

 SwissCanonica offers a nutritious and balanced menu that is designed to fuel and satisfy children throughout the school day.  Each meal consists of a vegetable starter, protein based main course with a side dish, and finished with a healthy dessert.  The food looks appealing – freshly cooked, home style meals designed for children; it is the right combination of healthy and delicious.

“At SWISSCANONICA, food quality is our key concern, which is why we place so much emphasis on our ingredients.  In addition, we believe that healthy and nutritious food is especially important for growing children.  Our menus are created in consultation with a nutritional specialist, to ensure a balanced and healthy meal every day. Working closely with some of the best suppliers in Dubai, we offer high quality ingredients in all our meals. Bringing together local and seasonal ingredients, our Chef has created an inspired menu that is both delicious and healthy.”

 SwissCanonica Chef and team of cooks provide a European inspired menu with a mix of dishes from around the world.  Everyday their team prepares two different menus, each with a starter, main course and healthy dessert.  The menu is based around meat, fish or poultry while the other menu is vegetarian – helping to teach children (and adults) the many ways of incorporating more vegetables in their diet.  Parents and children can choose between protein or vegetarian menu, ensuring that each child received a delicious and healthy meal that they will enjoy.  At the end of each week Chef creates a country specific menu – helping children learn about the world through the meals they eat.

We are thrilled to be working with SwissCanonica and believe that both our students and parents will be very happy with the quality of the food and service.
