The Good Practice Guide - Supporting Healthy Eating and Drinking at School

The draft Good Practice Guide - Supporting Healthy Eating and Drinking at School (The draft Good Practice Guide) is part of a national approach to supporting student wellbeing, through promoting healthy practices, a healthy food and drink culture and environments that support healthy food and drink choices.

There are four pillars that make up the draft Good Practice Guide:

·         Shared Leadership

·         Healthy Food and Drink Policy

·         Teaching and Learning

·         Partnerships

The draft Good Practice Guide is about evidence-based action. It is about bringing together partners from government, non-government organisations, the private sector, and the broader school community to work together with schools on actions that support student wellbeing.

The draft Good Practice Guide requires your input so that it meets the needs of a broad range of stakeholders. This consultation survey is being conducted by Queensland Department of Health on behalf of a national advisory group, who is responsible for drafting the Good Practice Guide. The survey includes questions regarding the structure, pitch and language of the draft Good Practice Guide, and provides an opportunity to comment on content. We are also collecting information on potential case studies related to healthy eating and drinking in schools. Completion of the survey should take less than 10 minutes. Thank you in advance for your participation in the survey.
