Active Education School Camp Catering
Our improved school camp menu options provide Rite Bite information to assist our school camp customers to make informed choices in light of considering DECD departmental guidelines.
Does the Right Bite policy apply to school camps and excursions?
Food and drinks provided to students as part of an organised school service including camps and excursions are encouraged to fit within the GREEN or AMBER food categories within the Right Bite policy. (Source: EatWellSA)
The Right Bite Food and Drink Spectrum helps schools and preschools promote healthy eating by classifying food into 3 categories according to their nutritional value:
- GREEN category foods and drinks are the healthiest choices - schools and preschools are encouraged to provide as many choices as possible from this category
- AMBER category foods and drinks are more processed with some added salt, sugar and / or fat - schools and preschools are encouraged to select carefully from this category
- RED category foods and drinks are highly processed, energy dense and nutrient poor - these are banned from sale in Government school canteens and vending machines at all times
