There are many factors that should be taken into consideration when menu planning e.g.

  • the size of the school (number of students)
  • number of lunches prepared each day
  • number of people who work in the canteen and their level of expertise in preparing food,
  • equipment available
  • the nutritional value of the food and drinks.

Remember, canteen menus must comply with the Department of Education’s Student Health in Public Schools policy and Appendix B Healthy Food and Drink and reflect the Australian Dietary Guidelines and Australian Guide to Healthy Eating.
