Are your students struggling to get through the school day? Consider offering a daily Crunch&Sip® break and allowing your students to refuel on fresh vegies, fruit and to sip on water in the classroom. The Crunch&Sip® campaign aims to remind parents to pack vegies, fruit and water every day and help children build healthy habits from a young age. To help spread the word, there are lots of great materials available for schools to use on their social media platforms. The rules are flexible, so work out what is best for yourself and your students.
This program provides engaging and fun nutrition education and cooking resources tailored for school aged children. The resources are excellent for use in the classroom as teaching tools and classroom rewards. All resources are available to download, free of charge.
Foodbank WA has been running a School Breakfast Program (SBP) since 2001 in response to a growing awareness that students were going to school most days without eating breakfast. Foodbank WA supplies quality SBP food products to registered schools free of charge, to ensure that all students have an equal opportunity to receive a wholesome, nutritious breakfast on a regular basis.

Refresh.ED provides teachers with a suite of free online K-10 food and nutrition teaching resources. Developed at Edith Cowan University, these materials are designed to support teachers to integrate content on food, nutrition, healthy eating and food preparation skills into a range of learning areas in the Australian Curriculum. Our teaching units are developed to enhance student food literacy across four key areas: Food and Drink Source, Choice, Experience and Health. Each of these focus areas are comprehensively explored across the year levels, allowing for the inclusion of challenging nutrition topics such as making healthy choices, nutrition misinformation, food labelling and critiquing media influences. Refresh.ED also provides teachers with online professional learning materials including nutrition information sheets, educational videos and links to topical food and nutrition news articles.
In our technologically-driven lives, it’s easy to lose connection to the natural world. Particularly where our food comes from. Living in the suburbs, most of our food is conveniently available from our fridge or supermarket. Brownes Dairy School Tours provide a rare opportunity for students (Kindy to Year 6) to understand where milk comes from and how it’s used to make delicious dairy products.
