  • What is a Healthy Kids Registered Product?

    Healthy Kids Registered Products are assessed by qualified Dietitians and Nutritionists for compliance with the stringent Healthy Kids Nutrient Criteria which is based on the 'Australian Dietary Guidelines for Children and Adolescents" and the NSW Fresh Tastes @ School Healthy School Canteen Strategy. These criteria were developed in consultation with Food Industry and Health Professionals.

  • How are the products assessed?

    Product Nutritional Data is supplied by the manufacturer and is measured against Healthy Kids Nutrient Criteria prior to being registered as a Healthy Kids Registered Product. At it's discretion, the Healthy Kids Association may request Independent Nutritional analysis to be supplied by the manufacturer.

  • What's all the fuss with GREEN, AMBER & RED Products?

    The GREEN, AMBER, RED Classification system is a quick reference guide for parents and Canteen Managers alike. The system was developed to help make it easier to decide how often certain types of products should appear on NSW School Canteen Menus. RED products are "Occasional foods" and are only allowed to be served at school on a maximum of 2 days per term.GREEN foods are encouraged as 'Everyday Foods' and Canteens are encouraged to "Fill the menu and have plenty". AMBER products are encouraged to be "Selected carefully". .
