The Rite Bite representative provided Tracy (Canteen Manager) and Michelle (Canteen Committee Convenor) with some verbal feedback and suggestions on the day and a written report was received in Week 6 of this term. The canteen committee has since met with the Governing Council Chairperson (Hilary) to read the report. The recommendations have all been acted upon and as a result some changes have been made to our over the counter items. We will continue to offer a range of "small change items" for sale and our Canteen will continue to promote healthy eating. The canteen will now supply even more fresh food items, and less packaged items. Keep an eye on our newsletters for the range of muffins and frozen snacks available .
Fraser Keegan (Rite Bite Rep) also attended our Governing Council Meeting this week and further added to our knowledge and understanding of the health and medical implications of children not eating a balanced diet. Fraser's key message was that we should all (adults and children) be eating a rainbow of fruit/vegetables everyday. Fraser was able to share some interesting (and shocking!) facts with attendees. We will be sharing some of Fraser's slides over the next few newsletters.
