Well, they are! Latest when you present them a unique camp experience with us at Schloss Leizen.
We are very happy that we finished the process for our organic (BIO) certification! We’ve cooked bio before, but are entitled to refer to it as BIO now!
Which is why we serve healthy and balanced diets to our young guests at Schloss Leizen. Last week we went a level higher and finally got our official certification as an ORGANIC FOOD provider. We can now openly announce that almost all of our suppliers are organic certified (mostly German regional) companies. The two major exceptions are our long-term local partners that deliver excellent quality milk Van der Ham (from the nearby village Bollewick) and fish Die Müritzfischer (from Waren an der Müritz).
Another key element of every breakfast is carbohydrates. Healthy carbs at breakfast give your body an energy boost, which it needs for the day. Here, at Schloss Leizen, you won’t get your carbs through the usual bread or muesli…
Your body needs a lot of important nutrients to stay fit and energized throughout the day, for example, vitamins. These can be either water-soluble or fat-soluble:
🌱 Water-soluble vitamins include vitamins C and B. Your body needs vitamin B for a proper exchange of nutrients in the cells (metabolism). Vitamin C blocks dangerous molecules (catches free radicals), which helps the immune system.
🌱 Fat-soluble vitamins include vitamin A, D, E and K. These are important for building new cells in the body.
We always make sure that children get their portion of vitamins with each and every freshly cooked meal we serve, especially at breakfast. Check out the pictures below!
Good mood can set the tone for the rest of the day. This is why we value the family atmosphere at our Schloss Leizen breakfasts so highly. We get to enjoy the first sunlight together, joke around, help each other wake up still sleepy kids and discuss our plans for the new day. And all that – as a big family, with the young and the old at one table.
The summer camp experience is a highly valuable part of many young people’s formative years and there are many amazing camps throughout the world delivering quality programs and care.
