Healthy Eating (Canteen) Policy Rationale
We (St Peter’s community) believe that offering a wide range of healthy eating choices increases students’ awareness of healthy nutritional habits, which are essential to their growth and development.
- To have the canteen provide students and staff with many nutritional options, which reinforce the healthy eating message from within the classroom and are consistent with current dietary guidelines
- A healthy eating policy will also help to reduce the amount of sugar/fat filled foods being brought from home and the litter being left in the school ground
- Involve parents and the wider school community in the education of students
- The canteen should be a stand alone enterprise, able to provide a financial contribution towards student resources in the school
