Creating Healthier Tuckshops in Queensland Schools
The Healthier Tuckshops program is a proud partnership between QAST and our funding partner, Health and Wellbeing Queensland.
The program is all about helping tuckshops serve healthy foods and drinks, in line with the Smart Choices strategy for Queensland schools. Available to all schools, the program offers free networking opportunities, online resources, and communications. A free food and drink classification service for manufacturers, industry members and suppliers is also available.
