This poster presents the nutritional standards for school lunches that all grant-aided schools must adhere to. This school nutrition resource was distributed to all grant-aided schools in Northern Ireland in support of the School food: top marks programme. The programme, launched by the Department of Education, the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety and the Health Promotion Agency for Northern Ireland, recognises the important role schools play in contributing to childhood nutrition and in developing childrenメs knowledge and skills in relation to making healthier food choices. The School food: top marks programme also includes the substantial nutritional resource, School food: the essential guide, and the publication of nutritional standards for all grant-aided schools. The standards are set out in two companion publications: Nutritional standards for school lunches: a guide to implementation and Nutritional standards for other food and drinks in schools: a guide to implementation.
