Canteen toolkit to make the healthy choice, the easy choice

New resource toolkits are now available to help school canteens meet the revised Healthy School Canteen Strategy.

Students making the healthy choice

School canteens play a vital role in helping students develop healthy eating habits.

The resource toolkit has been delivered to every school in NSW. It contains information on the 10 Steps to a Healthy School Canteen online program, how to guides, the free Menu Check application and the Healthy Food Finder tool. The kit guides canteen managers through the transition to a healthy school canteen where healthy choices, are the easy choice for students. The resources are also available online.

The Healthy School Canteen Strategy supports the Premier’s priority to reduce overweight and obesity rates of children by five percentage points by 2025.

NSW schools are transitioning to the new guidelines over a three-year period with all canteens expected to meet the Food and Drink Criteria by the end of 2019.

Visit the Healthy School Canteens website for more information.
