Schools

You’ve come to the right place to learn about helping your school to promote healthy eating and encourage students and staff to make healthier food and drink choices.

The Healthy Eating Advisory Service (HEAS) has supported many Victorian primary and secondary schools to make successful improvements to the food and drinks offered to their community

If you’re here for the first time, go to Getting Started to help you discover the best place to begin. Work your way through the many resources available on our website to help you to:

  • develop healthy eating policies for long-term success
  • learn about healthier food and drink options
  • discover healthier canteen recipes
  • work effectively with food service staff and committees.

We continually update our resources so please check back regularly for new information about healthy eating. And, don’t forget to refer this website to anyone else in your school that may be interested.

Any questions? We’re here to help. Contact us on 1300 225 288 or email us.
