The school eating culture is closely related to the cultivation of students' healthy dietary habit, and snacks suppliers and school tuck shop operators play an important role in this aspect. With the issue of Nutritional Guidelines on Snacks for Students(the Guidelines) since 2006, many primary schools have already followed the Education Bureau's recommendation and formulated their school healthy eating policy in compliance with the Guidelines, which covers areas like contracts with snacks suppliers that favours healthy eating in schools.

To allow the industry to better appreciate the latest advocates of school snacks and adapt to this new market environment, DH held two sessions of "Nutrition Workshop for Snack Suppliers and Tuck Shop Operators" on 12 and 26 March 2010. More than 125 teachers and representatives of snack suppliers / school tuck shop operators attended the workshops with a view to working together to promote the health of students

Through talks and group activities, snack suppliers and tuck shop operators can have better understandings on the dietary preference and nutrition requirements of students, learn more on key points of the revised Guidelines as well as the application of nutrition labels in school context.
