We recently made the exciting announcement that we are now offical partners of ‘The Tuckshop Revolution’. Supporting families to make healthy, informed choices is something we are really passionate about so we’re really proud to be part of this groundbreaking movement.
What’s it all about?
Well, essentially The Tuckshop Revolution is a partnership beween Australian businesses seeking to empower schools and their students to develop and maintain healthy habits. It is our mission to modernise and improve Aussie tuckshops by making it easy for schools and students to develop healthy habits. That means providing healthy (and yummy!) menu options and easily accessible nutritional information and advice.
How does it work?
Schools are invited to take The Tuckshop Revolution Pledge.…..
They then embark on a three step journey....
Step 1 Learn: A certified nutritionist from Healthy Habits Nutrition Education reviews the school tuckshop menu, provides recommendations, nutritional breakdowns and develops healthy meal suggestions for kids of all ages.
Step 2 Act: An amazing team of brand partners (including us!) will be ready to help stock schools with healthy and yummy snack and meal alternatives for kids.
Step 3 Empower: My School Tuckshop has a great online ordering system with a range of special features to help empower schools, parents and students to develop healthy habits. Nutritional information and meal plan options can be loaded and accessed at the click of a button!
Why should I get involved?
Rates of obesity, diabetes and other food related illness are higher than ever before. Healthy habits are formed early and education is key, that’s why we need to start right at the beginning, with our kids!
How do I get involved?
If you are a teacher, principal or staff member of a school then all you need to do is head on over and join The Tuckshop Revolution by completing a simple form. And don’t worry there’s no cost, it’s completely free and just by joining the revolution, you will gain access to some awesome exclusive deals from all of the brand partners!
If you are a parent, grandparent or caregiver and want your child’s school to get involved by providing healthy food options, education and nutritional information to all their families, then tell them about The Tuckshop Revolution! Show them this blog, tag them on Facebook, send them to the website or just have a chat with your child’s teacher. It only takes small, simple actions to start a revolution and we’d really love you to join us!
