Education and tools for canteen managers to increase vegetables in primary school canteens and vegetable consumption by children (MT22006)

Key research provider: Healthy Kids Association

What's it all about?

This project is engaging primary school canteens across Australia through a range of initiatives to boost the consumption of veggies at school and create long-term healthy eating habits.

Known as ‘For the Love of Veg, ’ the project will develop practical tools and educational resources to increase vegetable inclusion in primary school canteen menus and increase vegetable consumption by children.

The program will draw on the networks and expertise the Canteen Consortium provides, which includes five leading canteen associations and networks across Australia that can reach primary schools nationwide.
