Healthy Eating Policies

Pin It

Is your community, facility, or organization thinking about adopting a healthy eating policy? There are clear benefits of having a policy in place:

  • defines “healthy eating” – this can mean different things to different people! We want to promote healthy food and beverages found in Canada’s Food Guide;
  • ensures healthy eating will continue to be promoted, even after staff/volunteer changes;
  • highlights your town/organization as a leader in health and wellness!

Check out our Sample Healthy Eating Policy for inspiration. Eat Great and Participate can also work with you to tailor a policy that suits your needs.
