Eating healthy in school can decrease student absenteeism and behavioural problems, and contribute to overall better learning and performance.

A number of supporting resources are available for school staff, students and parents at www.healthyschoolsbc.ca/foodguidelines and include tips and recipes for quantity cooking, slide presentations, fact sheets, recipes and tips for healthier baked goods and a brand name food list to identify prepackaged food and beverages that meet nutritional guidelines.

Take a moment to review this information and/or connect with a public health or community dietitian by dialing 811 for more information or support.
