Implementing healthy habits from early childhood is key to set up children for a life trajectory of optimal growth and reduced risk of developing chronic conditions later on in life. Health-related behaviours have been described to track from childhood to adolescence and adulthood.


NNSW can help you help your students hit their developmental milestones and stay strong and healthy.

We work with the entire school community (teachers, principles, parents, carers, students, tuckshops and staff) to offer not only evidence-based but practical nutrition
and food service information.

Our Services

Nutrition NSW provides a variety of services to students, parents & school communities including:

  • Seminars & Workshops
  • Cooking Demonstrations
  • Menu reviews for tuck shops
  • Tailored packages

The services Nutrition NSW provides are in line with the campaigns and programs provided under the NSW Government healthykids initiative. These include: Live Life Well @ School, Go4Fun, Healthy Schools Canteen Strategy, Crunch&Sip and more.

Reclaim the Lunchbox

Reclaim the Lunchbox is a workshop designed to help parents get the lunchbox right from the first day.

Schools often tell us that parents try to make lunchboxes healthy for their child, but often get it wrong. One ideal opportunity to get all new parents together and clarify what is and what isn’t healthy is Kinder Orientation evening – to ensure lunchboxes are right from the very first day.

NANSW staff can visit your school and inspire your parents to provide healthy lunchboxes and support your school’s efforts in instilling healthy habits and optimal learning.
