A kindy orientation session is a fantastic way to introduce new parents to the Healthy Food and Drink in Public Schools (HFD) policy and increase their knowledge about packing a healthy lunchbox. In the Perth metropolitan area a representative from WASCA will join the pre-organised session at your school and provide a brief 15-minute overview, including:
- HFD policy and traffic light system of categorising foods
- The ABCD lunchbox
- We touch on allergy and food safety
- Each family will be given a Packed with Goodness resource, specifically designed to help parents provide healthy food for their children
- Each teacher will be given a resource pack with posters and a Healthy School Healthy Student-teacher guide.
WASCA works in partnership with other health professional in regional and remote WA, many of whom are available to deliver kindy orientation sessions on WASCA’s behalf.
The WASCA kindy video is a short video that contains useful tips and can be played at these sessions. For supporting resources contact the Packed with Goodness team.
