Healthy Kids are Happy Kids

Did you know that only 5% of Australian children eat enough vegetables? It’s known that healthy eating is vital for their growth and development with vegetables playing a key role in this. Promoting a healthier way of eating in school canteens is necessary to educate and raise awareness of healthier food options, ultimately contributing to healthier and happier kids. Providing this guidance is Pro-Visual Publishing, in partnership with the Healthy Kids Association and the National Safety Council of Australia (NSCA) Foundation, who have released their new School Canteen Guide to Food Safety & Nutrition 2018. The Guide provides informative tips on how to incorporate more vegetables into their diet at school and tips to motivate kids and how to make healthy food more interesting.

Not only is the importance of eating vegetables explored throughout the Guide, it also discusses wastage problems in canteens and offers solutions on how to best combat issues such as over-stocking, stock rotation and over-production and taking left over food home. The where, when and how of hand washing is also included, giving canteen workers a constant useful reminder to wash their hands.

Augmented Reality (AR) is a digital technology featured on the Guide to help engage canteen workers and contribute to their retention of information in an interesting and helpful way. By downloading the Pro-Vis AR app, users can access engaging resources and further information targeted at ensuring health and safety in school canteens across Australia.

“I would like to thank all the sponsors of the School Canteen Guide to Food Safety & Nutrition 2018. Their support has made it possible for the Guide to be distributed free of charge.” – John Hutchings, CEO, Pro-Visual Publishing.
