EAT FOR HEALTH

Eat for Health

You will find the Australian Guide to Eating and Australian Dietary Guidelines here, as well as a number of other nutrition resources to order or download. The Australian Guide to Healthy Eating is a visual guide to the relative proportions of the five food groups that we should eat each day. The Australian Dietary Guidelines gives information about the amounts of food we should be eating and dietary patterns for health. The Australian Guide to Healthy Eating and Australian Dietary Guidelines are based on a large amount of evidence and research. Most of the programs below are based on these documents.

HEALTHY FOOD AND DRINK POLICY IN SCHOOLS

Schools and their canteen are well placed to support healthy eating and in fact have a vital role to play in helping to reduce the worldwide epidemic of childhood obesity.

Children should eat a wide range of foods so that they have the energy for learning and growing. The 'traffic light' system helps public schools plan menus full of healthy, nutritious and affordable food and drinks. Food and drinks available at schools through canteens and food services, class treats, school camps and excursions should be consistent with the nutrition and physical activity messages taught in the classroom.

Schools must follow the policy as described below:

food-standard-green GREEN category foods are encouraged. Schools should aim to fill their menus with these healthy foods.
food-standard-orange AMBER foods should be selected carefully and eaten in moderation.
food-standard-red RED food and drinks are off the menu and will not be available in public schools.

Parents are encouraged to use the GREEN AMBER RED system at home too.

FOODBANK'S SCHOOL BREAKFAST PROGRAM 

Foodbank WA supplies School Breakfast Program food products to registered schools free of charge to ensure that all students have an equal opportunity to receive a wholesome, nutritious breakfast on a regular basis. Over 440 schools across Western Australia participate in the program.
