Schools provide a unique environment in which children can develop learned behaviours conducive to a healthy lifestyle. Children five to fifteen years of age spend a large proportion of their time at school which provides an opportunity for teachers to role model, teach and provide opportunities for healthy eating and physical activity messages. School canteens are also an integral part of the food environment by providing food services to students and opportunities for them to make informed consumer choices that cement messages taught in the classroom.
Good for Kids Good for Life provides support for Primary Schools consistent with the NSW Ministry of Health’s Live Life Well @ School Program, and are in line with National nutrition and physical activity guidelines and NSW Curriculum outcomes. Good for Kids aims to support best practice for healthy eating and physical activity in Primary Schools across our area.
