Our stakeholders led us to define 7 key principles to adopt a whole school approach to food.
CONNECTS-Food helps you to think about principles to embed in your school.
As part of our research, we developed this school food map, consisting of 4 key domains:
Leadership & Curriculum
Child food preference
School food environment
The factors illustrated within these domains are interconnected and therefore all ultimately influence child food choice. By implementing a whole school approach to food in your school, you can change the way the system behaves. For example, if youchange school food policy and culture, its likely that this will influence child food preference and intake.
