Campaigning for healthy school food

Campaigning for healthy school food >

From the Healthy Food Guide:

"The state school my boys attend implemented a Healthy Food Policy (HFP) to take effect at the beginning of Term 3, 2014. YES, this was my moment. Everybody has their soapbox issue. Mine is healthy food for children.

I have always set out to feed my boys a balanced and healthy diet as this has huge benefits in terms of growth – physical, emotional and social. I have also come to realise how important the ‘food environment’ can be when it comes to decision-making about what food to buy for children and adults. Peer pressure and the way food is discussed, prepared, served and viewed can make such a difference to what is wanted and what is eaten."
