At Eatons Hill State School we support healthy eating.
Our tuckshop - Eatons Hill Snack Shack - provides a variety of reasonably priced, nutritious food and drinks, with many of them being prepared on site. The menu follows the guidelines from "Smart Choices – Healthy Food and Drink Supply Strategy for Queensland Schools”.
Smart Choices – Healthy Food and Drink Supply Strategy for Queensland Schools
In June 2005, the Queensland Government announced the implementation of the Smart Choices – Healthy Food and Drink Supply Strategy for Queensland Schools. Smart Choices is one initiative in a broad Queensland Government program to promote healthy weight and improve children and young people’s health through better nutrition. The 'Smart Choices ‐ Healthy Food and Drink Supply Strategy' for Queensland Schools is all about offering healthy food and drink choices to students.
What does this mean? Basically, it means that all food and drink items are categorised into 'Green', 'Amber' or 'Red' groups.
Green = Have plenty. These foods and drinks are encouraged and promoted in schools.
Amber = Select carefully. These foods and drinks should not dominate choices and should be avoided in large serves.
Red = Occasional. The availability of these foods and drinks should be limited to no more than two occasions per term.
Additional Snack Shack information such as the current menu can be found on our P&C website.
