NSW Healthy School Canteen Strategy
The Strategy was released in Term 1, 2017 and was developed by the Department of Education and NSW Ministry of Health with support from the Association of Independent Schools and the NSW Catholic Education Commission. The Strategy applies to all public schools in NSW and is strongly encouraged by Catholic and Independent schools.
The Healthy School Canteen Information Service is a one stop shop dedicated to supporting schools to implement The NSW Healthy School Canteen Strategy. The Service operates Monday - Friday, 9:00am - 3:00pm. Canteen managers, staff and volunteers can contact the service on 1800 930 966 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Good for Kids Team are here to help too. Contact us at: HNELHD-GoodForKids@health.nsw.gov.au and one of our team will be in touch.
Good for Kids, Good for Life supports schools throughout the Hunter New England region to implement the NSW Healthy School Canteen Strategy. The support we provide schools to do so is based on research undertaken by the program.
