NSW Healthy School Canteen Strategy
The Healthy School Canteen Strategy increases the availability of healthy food and drink options in school canteens to help make the healthy choice, the easy choice.
Ready, Set, Choose
A simple resource aimed at helping schools and canteens to check their menus against the Food and Drink Criteria.
Menu Check Application Form
Use this form to submit your canteen’s menu to the NSW School Canteen Menu Check Service, who reviews your menu against the NSW Healthy School Canteen Strategy.
Healthy Food Finder
Register and sign in to find foods and drinks suitable for NSW school canteens and health facilities.
Health Kids Website
The healthy kids website has loads of information and resources related to the NSW Healthy School Canteen Strategy, including fresh recipes that are nutritious and tasty and are quick and easy to prepare.
Drinking water is the best way to quench thirst. Even better, it doesn’t come with all the sugar and energy (kilojoules) found in fruit juice drinks, soft drinks, sports drinks and flavoured mineral waters.

How Green is your Canteen?
The Central Coast Green Canteen Challenge organised by Rumbalara Environmental Education Centre is about reducing the single-use plastic footprint in our schools and championing plastic free canteens. The aim is to help school canteens reduce and remove single-use plastic items, and replacing them with reusable or sustainable items.
Take up the challenge and find out how green your canteen can be.
