Snack foods in the tuckshop

It’s important to give students energy between meals, to help them learn and play. Snacks are a great way to get this done.

Some children prefer to ‘graze’ throughout the day. So, it’s important to offer snacks that are nutritious and healthy.

When planning a tuckshop menu, the snack section is often the trickiest to get right for variety, affordability, and convenience.

It doesn’t need to be extensive – aim for no more than five or six healthy options. Change it up each term or season for extra variety. Choose minimally processed foods that require limited preparation time.

This fact sheet provides a list of super snack ideas that are rated GREEN and AMBER in line with Smart Choices.
