About Smart Choices
Healthy eating and regular physical activity are essential to promoting and maintaining good health. The Smart Choices – Healthy Food and Drink Supply Strategy for Queensland Schools is all about offering healthy food and drink choices to students in Queensland schools.
Smart Choices, which became mandatory in State Schools from 1 January 2007. It applies to all situations where food and drink is supplied in the school environment including tuckshops, vending machines, school excursions, school camps, fundraising, classroom rewards, school events such as celebrations and sports days and food used in curriculum activities.
Reflecting the Australian Dietary Guidelines for Children and Adolescents and the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating, Smart Choices categorises foods and drinks into three 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 serve sizes.
Red – Occasionally. The availability of these foods and drinks should be limited to no more than two occasions per term.
The Department of Education, Training and Employment and Queensland Health have evaluated the implementation of Smart Choices across Queensland's state schools.
