Healthy tuckshop menu inspiration

Healthy food environments in schools play an important role in helping children make healthy food and drink choices for life.

School tuckshops play a key part in this, and by offering a healthy menu you can help improve health outcomes for children.

QAST uses the Department of Education Smart Choices- Healthy Food and Drink Supply Strategy to guide our Menu Health Check service for members – to help you identify the strengths of your current menu and give you the tools and ideas to make it healthier.

Menus exceeding the minimum requirements of the strategy are given a 4-apple or 5-apple rating. We celebrate these achievements as these tuckshops are working hard to enable healthier school environments.

If you’re aspiring to deliver a menu that doesn’t just meet but exceeds, check out the QAST member menus* below for inspiration.

And remember, a healthy, profitable menu doesn’t need to be super extensive or complex. Aim for one or two pages, with well laid-out sections, and simple, healthy and easy to prepare options.
