Murrumbidgee Local Health District's Health Promotion team is working in schools and sporting clubs to increase healthy food options in these settings.
Children are bombarded with unhealthy food messages every day. It makes it hard for children to know what is healthy and what isn’t. Healthy options in canteens help children easily choose what their bodies need.
We have been working closely with canteens since 2015. See our report from our early school canteen menu support program and our animated video. The video shows the benefits of healthy school canteens and celebrates the milestone of 100% public primary schools achieving the healthy school canteen strategy.
Project evaluation snapshots
We have summarised a range of projects that have supported aspects of Healthy Canteens through these evaluation snapshots. Please read these to get an understanding of the projects and if you have any questions please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
