Boarding School Menu Assessments

Food Smart Schools

Need

Eating habits formed during formative years shape lifelong eating habits. Many Qld boarding schools provide too many choices that are high in fat, added sugar and salt. Healthy eating improves student health and performance in the classroom.

Solution

Through our Food Smart Schools Program Boarding Schools can have their menus assessed by our nutrition experts and receive advice and support to improve the options they provide to their students.

Outcomes

The boarding schools we have worked with have responded well to our advice and support and have worked towards improving the options they provide to boarders helping schools and students to better achieve their learning goals.
