How the Nutritional Foods in the Schools Committee of the Sudbury Board of Education Developed a Food Services Policy.
Yackman, Bernardine
This paper chronicles the attempt by the Sudbury Board of Education (Ontario) to minimize the addiction of the children and teenagers in its schools to "junk foods." The plan involved the teaching of good eating habits and the principles of nutrition in food choices. The program used a variety of pedagogical and merchandising strategies to effect these ends, in cooperation with teachers, resource staff, experts in dietetics and public health, and the vendors and caterers concerned. Detailed also is the process by which the board's Food Services Policy was developed, and by which its success is monitored annually. Lengthy appendices contain charts explaining nutritional and dental food values, an application of a dental and nutrition education policy in schools, a bulletin explaining the program to parents and a sample agreement between a food vending company and the school.
