During the past few months we’ve been developing a collection of  new resources based on best practices for nutrition programs. We’ve also been developing vegetable and fruit-focused projects, and working with the Coalition for Healthy School Food on a national school food program. Read on to learn more:

Our New Stuff

Best practices provide examples that every program should be working towards or working to maintain at all times. Take a look at our Fact Sheets and Best Practices page to see the (still expanding!) collection and download any resources that will be of help to you. Note that our collection of best practices fact sheets is organized into areas of Nutrition, Safety, Management, Education, Inclusion and Sustainability.

Vegetable and Fruit Projects

We invite you to spend a moment today learning about the many Vegetable and Fruit Projects that we are working on. These projects currently include offering a Vegetable and Fruit snack option to all schools applying for funding and co-coordinating a Bulk Produce Program in Winnipeg.

We also want to mark the end of our multi-year Vegetable and Fruit Snack program with a fond farewell. All of the lessons learned during the program have been integrated into our current programming and we look forward to continuing our work in the field of produce.

Coalition for Healthy School Food

The Coalition for Healthy School Food, made up of more than twenty organizations across Canada, is working towards federal investment in a Universal Healthy School Food Program to ensure all students can eat healthy food at school everyday. As a member of the coalition, the Child Nutrition Council is spreading the word. See for yourself!
