Healthy School Canteen Strategy

fruits and vegetables

The NSW Healthy School Canteen Strategy is all about giving students across NSW a taste for healthy foods and to make the healthy choice, the easy choice. The Strategy addresses NSW school canteens to support healthy growth and development of students.

All NSW public schools are required to transition to the NSW Healthy School Canteen Strategy over a three-year period (2017-2019) and non-government schools are strongly encouraged to participate.

The Strategy has a set of Food and Drink Criteria that outlines a healthy school canteen. It applies to all foods and drinks provided in NSW school canteens and vending machines. For more information or to access the resources available, please visit the Healthy Schools Canteen website
