Children need healthy food and physical activity for growth and development. It is expected that students be taught the principles of healthy eating as part of the health program. Children also learn from what role models say and do. The school environment must support this learning by promoting nutritious food choices in canteens, cafeterias, classrooms, and offices. In addition, breakfast programs, where applicable, should provide students with the energy required to learn and be physically active each day.
This policy does not impact on lunches, snacks, etc., which students or staff members bring from home.
