Partners and Links
There are a number of different government canteen policy/guidelines across Australian States and Territories. However, there are a number of synergies as they are each based on the Australian Dietary Guidelines (2013). With the exception of New South Wales, all jurisdictions use a traffic light system to categorise food and drinks.
The policy/guidelines are reviewed regularly by policy owners including the Departments of Health and Education.
Below you will find a link to each State and Territory’s policy/guidelines.
Canteen Associations and Networks
Most jurisdictions also have organisations who support to school canteens to help implement policy/guidelines.
FOCiS recognises the important role of Canteen Associations and Networks and aims to advocate for greater effectiveness and efficiency based on collaboration.
