Nutrition policy

Read about our dietary policy here

At IHS, our kitchen strategy is about more than just cooking – it’s a journey, where we embrace the changing seasons. In the winter, we harness the rich flavor of cabbage, while summer brings juicy carrots and fresh tomatoes. In the autumn, we delight in apples from local growers on Als, who bring their fresh harvest to our table.

Our standards are high, and we don’t compromise on quality. We collaborate closely with our suppliers to ensure that only the best makes its way to our kitchen, so our students can always enjoy fresh and well-prepared food.

Cooking that challenges our senses

To us, it means something that our food is made from fresh ingredients and that the colors and flavors challenge our senses. We keep up with the latest trends in the culinary world, and we serve organic ingredients wherever possible. We work creatively to utilize all ingredients, saving resources and minimizing food waste. It’s a major focus area for us.

Sustainability – a natural choice

We focus on sustainability and we don’t think it’s a necessity to eat melons from Brazil in winter – we prefer a pear from Denmark!

As a student at IHS you will help to collect the food waste separately in containers so it can be recycled into biogas.

Special diet

Diet is an important part of a folk high school stay and we make sure to meet special needs whether they are of principle, medical or religious reasons.
We are therefore happy to serve vegetarian meals to students and course members.
When registering for a course or stay, please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements.

Dietary Committee

As a student you have the opportunity to contribute with new ideas via our dietary committee – a committee that students can join.

To increase the daily contact between the kitchen team and the students.
To involve the students in the daily work and to gain insight into the students’ wishes for the daily diet at IHS
To make the students feel responsible for their own diet.
