School Food Guidelines

The School Food Guidelines were developed to help create a supportive environment for healthy eating in the school setting.

They are based on Canada’s Food Guide and have been updated to provide additional guidance for making healthy food choices.

The guidelines include:

  • A detailed list of food and beverages that can be sold and served in school cafeterias, canteens and vending machines
  • Information on foods that are the most healthy, nutritious and suitable
For tips on how to provide healthy lunches and snacks for your children, refer to Eastern Health’s Healthy Lunch Ideas and Healthy Snack Ideas handouts.
 
For a growing list of healthy ideas for classroom celebrations check out the Creative Healthy Eating Ideas for All Occasions section of Living Healthy Schools.
