A whole school approach to promoting healthy food and drinks is where the whole school environment supports consistent messages that make healthy choices a positive and normal part of every child’s day.
The Canteen Accreditation Program ensures the whole school community supports and reinforces the types of food and drinks available in the canteen. This is achieved by taking a whole school approach to healthy eating, where the canteen is integrated into all aspects of the school. This includes linking the canteen to classroom learning and wider school activities that support healthy eating. For example; fundraising, marketing of healthy foods, other health promotion programs, such as Move Well Eat Well, Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden and school events and celebrations.
