According to the Harvard University School of Public Health, “The most important determinants of good health are what we eat and how active we are.” At Suffield Academy, we advocate that each and every student finds a balance between body, mind, and spirit. We do this by requiring students to play a sport each season, providing each student with an advisor who assists them in managing their daily life, and by offering many healthy food options. We believe a key to healthy eating is to take advantage of the variety of choices that are available in the dining hall. Our dining services staff takes great pride in their ability to offer good carbs, low-fat proteins, limited saturated fats, whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and plenty of choices for calcium. Local dairy farm Trinity Farms provides nutritious Greek-style yogurt and delicious pesto sauces. Specialty pastas are made locally at Carla’s Pasta of South Windsor. In addition, we offer in-house, hand crafted specialty pizza baked in our own commercial pizza ovens.
