Healthy eating at school

This page is for individuals or groups who work in or with schools, such as educators, administrators, health care professionals, and organizations. You'll find a variety of information for supporting healthy eating and positive relationships with food in the school setting.

Having access to nutritious food at school and the opportunity to engage in positive food experiences supports students to learn well, be well and live well. Schools are ideal settings for food-based learning and play an important role in helping students develop positive eating attitudes, behaviours, and skills that support lifelong well-being.
