Member benefits

Why join?

Healthy Kids is a member organisation. Our membership benefits service schools, leasees of canteens, health professionals, individuals and other affiliates. All of our services are directed towards improving food choices at school. Our children’s health is our future and ensuring they have healthy food choices at school is a priority, especially with obesity on the rise.

We are here to help. Our advice and policies are in line with the canteen and nutrition in schools policy which is mandatory for state public schools.
