Educators and school administrators play a very important role in promoting school health.

A school environment that is supportive of nutrition can help students develop lifelong healthy eating attitudes and skills.

Supporting healthy eating in school can help:

  • Students to adopt healthy eating behaviours as they receive messages from multiple channels (e.g. teachers, parents, peers and media).
  • Reinforce the curriculum and give students an opportunity to practice newly learned skills.
