Buyers’ Guide

The Healthy Kids School Canteen Buyers’ Guide is a valuable tool to help school canteen managers build healthier canteen menus in line with their state/territory’s healthy school canteen strategy and nutrition requirements. The Buyers’ Guide is a tool for school canteens with products listed that are not always available in supermarkets. Many products have been developed to meet the various healthy school canteen strategies and are available only through distributors in foodservice.
