Are your children eating junk food at school? They don't have to be...

Do your kids eat bad or low nutrition foods at school? 


Healthy eating at school sounds like an unrealistic dream for most parents, school teachers and administrators. Most think that even if their school canteens sold healthy food that the students wouldn't buy it anyway.


Fortunately, the evidence proves otherwise.


This video shows that if given the chance to eat good tasting, affordable healthy food that kids will jump at it. So much so in fact that once a healthy food menu was createdat the school in the video, school canteen sales doubled almost immediately.


Not every school can hire a sous chef to overhaul the school canteen like this New South Wales school did, and that is why Inspiro's health promotion team is here to assist with canteen overhauls; creating a healthy school environment, fun lunchbox programs and nutritional curriculums for teachers, as well as dietitian training for the staff:


Don't put up with your kids being served poor quality or low nutrition foods at school


A free and simple solution is available to your children eating junk food or low quality foods at school. Contact your school and simply ask them to join Inspiro's healthy food at school program, it's free of charge, is proven to work and requires minimal effort on the schools part.
