Life Ed Qld understands school tuckshops play a vital role in nutrition at school for many children, some of them daily. It is so important that healthy foods are provided and encouraged, and that children have tasty, nutritious options to choose from.
There is no doubt that tuckshops have differing competing demands and challenges and operate in many different ways, there is no one size fits all answer to success. On this page you will find relevant information and support for your tuckshop to help you and your students thrive.
