We are aware that many unhealthy snacks are available on the market, and their excessive consumption would not only spoils children's appetite for main meals but children would also unknowingly take in a large amount of oil, salt and sugar, which eventually increases their risk of obesity and developing chronic diseases. To create a more healthy school environment, both schools and parents have to:

  • Reflect school pursue on nutrition quality clearly to school snack suppliers
  • Monitor nutrition quality of school snacks on a regular basis
  • Document results of snack monitoring in an objective manner, and feedback these results to the snack supplier for quality improvement
  • Snacks brought by students should NOT belong to the group "Snacks to choose less"

To keep abreast of the revision of the “Nutritional Guidelines on Snacks for Students” as well as the development of Snack Nutritional Classification Wizard and Database of Prepackaged Snacks, the set of snack monitoring tools has been revised in January 2012 to provide schools and parents with objective and reliable snack monitoring data.
