2018 Queensland Tuckshop Survey

Schools are a valuable setting to encourage, support and promote healthy, life long eating behaviours. Improving the nutritional quality of foods offered at the tuckshop benefits both students’ health and wellbeing and contributes funds back into schools. I know this from my work with QAST and personally as Catering Manager at Ipswich Girls Grammar School.

The 2018 Queensland Tuckshop Snapshot Survey highlights some of the successes and challenges faced by Queensland tuckshops. It also recognises areas in need of improvement and makes recommendations for positive changes in the future.

I would like to give gratitude to the Department of Health for their ongoing support and enthusiasm regarding the health and wellbeing of Queensland school students.
