The CREATE healthy eating in schools program aimed to increase healthy food choices in schools and Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) services.
This program took a whole school approach to healthy eating and aimed to support schools to increase healthy food choices across the school, including within the canteen, OSHC services, classroom activities, fundraising and other school events and activities.
Schools were provided with access to three workshops over the year:
They also received resources, fact sheets for parents and support from the Centre for Health Promotion nutritionists.
Schools implemented the program by increasing healthy food choices in their canteens, implementing fruit and vegetable breaks in the classroom, and others developed strategies for raising parents' awareness of healthy eating.
