Menu Health Checks

QAST’s Menu Health Check service is designed to assist school tuckshop staff and management with the development of a healthy menu for your school.

The Menu Health Check compares your menu against the Smart Choices Food & Drink Supply Strategy, as developed by the Queensland Government, as well as QAST’s recommendations.

The report also highlights key areas of your school’s menu where healthier food and drinks are represented well or where improvements can be made.

The Menu Health Check uses the descriptions of items on your menu and some common assumptions to provide a snapshot review, indicating the proportions of items that fall into each of the Green, Amber or Red categories.
