The "EatSmart@school.hk" campaign promotes healthy eating to children and the school lunch caterers play an important role of it.

To equip chefs and staff of school lunch caterers involved in recipe design and development with a better understanding of the nutritional requirement of school children, and to develop their skills in designing recipes for healthy school lunch, the Department of Health has organized the 'Nutritional Cooking Training Workshop for Chefs' since August 2007. To go in-line with the upcoming revisions to the“Nutritional Guidelines on Lunch for Students”(2017) and to share the findings of the ‘Nutrient Testing of School Lunch in Primary Schools in Hong Kong 2013’, this year's workshop provided the following additional information:

  • Updated recommendations on serving size of lunch for students
  • Updated classification of food items for school lunch
  • Updated description of “good practices”
  • Updated description and examples of limited food items
  • Results of the ‘Nutrient Testing of School Lunch in Primary Schools in Hong Kong 2013’
  • Ways to estimate and reduce the sodium content in the lunch boxes
