School canteens can provide a substantial part of a child's daily food intake. Therefore the canteen plays an important role in promoting good nutrition and supporting healthy food habits which children can continue into adulthood. Canteens can also play a vital role in the nutrition education for the students through introducing students to new or different foods and supporting nutrition messages taught in class.


In NSW, public schools are required to meet the Fresh Tastes @ School NSW Healthy School Canteen Strategy. For further information on Fresh Tastes @ School please click here.
