Healthy Food in Schools

Food Is An Integral Part Of School Life

Whether it is served in cafeterias, canteens, or vending machines; offered as part of breakfast programs; used for fundraising or special events; or is a subject for curriculum instruction, food plays an important role in the school day.

This website will provide guidance and resources for anyone working in or with a school on food related activities throughout the school day, including teachers, parents, administrators, students, and health professionals.
