Healthy Canteen Strategy
NSW Healthy School Canteen Strategy
Fresh Food Fast’s Commitment
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, and our school canteens have an important role to play in providing healthy food and drink choices for students. Fresh Food Fast canteens supports the ‘whole-of-school’ approach to student health and wellbeing and reinforces the healthy eating messages that are taught in the classroom. How do we achieve this?
- We promote and increase student access to healthier foods and drinks
- A commitment to providing fresh, nutritious, homemade meals
- A team of chefs creating seasonal, healthy menus
The Strategy launch in 2017 was very much in line with Fresh Food Fast’s approach in offering homemade nutritious meals, and therefore adapting our menus to meet the criteria was effortless, as we were almost there!
In 2018, whilst operator for the Woodport Public School canteen, we became one of the first primary school canteens in NSW to be awarded a certificate of compliance for our menu meeting the new NSW Healthy School Canteen Strategy. The Department of Health NSW have made two short films about the canteen and its food and launched them on YouTube as an example of a success story re the new strategy implementation.
