Halal foods in the tuckshop

Islam is one of the fastest growing religions in Australia, so it’s important to understand its different dietary requirements for school tuckshops.

Halal is an Arabic word meaning lawful or permitted. It is contrasted with its opposite, Haram, which means unlawful and not permitted.

While these terms are used in all aspects of Islamic life, Halal is particularly associated with Islamic dietary laws and especially meat processed and prepared in accordance with those requirements.

We’ve put together a simple fact sheet to help you determine how to serve Halal foods in your tuckshop.

This resource was developed as part of the Healthier Tuckshops program funded by the Queensland Government through Health and Wellbeing Queensland.
