Administrative​ ​Procedure​ ​164

HEALTHY​ ​FOOD​ ​AND​ ​BEVERAGE​ ​CHOICES Background The​ ​district​ ​recognizes​ ​and​ ​supports​ ​the​ ​correlation​ ​between​ ​healthy​ ​nutrition​ ​and​ ​the​ ​physical, emotional,​ ​social​ ​and​ ​intellectual​ ​development​ ​of​ ​students.​ ​The​ ​district​ ​acknowledges​ ​that well-nourished​ ​students​ ​are​ ​able​ ​to​ ​concentrate​ ​better,​ ​retain​ ​and​ ​apply​ ​information​ ​more effectively​ ​and​ ​are​ ​more​ ​likely​ ​to​ ​demonstrate​ ​positive​ ​behaviours​ ​and​ ​relationships​ ​with​ ​others. Recognizing​ ​that​ ​a​ ​holistic​ ​approach​ ​to​ ​building​ ​students’​ ​knowledge​ ​about​ ​nutrition​ ​is important,​ ​the​ ​district,​ ​in​ ​collaboration​ ​with​ ​parents/legal​ ​guardians,​ ​community​ ​partners,​ ​the Alberta​ ​Health​ ​Services​ ​and​ ​food​ ​service​ ​providers,​ ​is​ ​committed​ ​to​ ​supporting​ ​education​ ​and life-long​ ​habits​ ​about​ ​healthy​ ​food​ ​and​ ​beverage​ ​choices​ ​in​ ​the​ ​curriculum​ ​and​ ​the​ ​everyday culture​ ​of​ ​schools. Healthy​ ​choices​ ​are​ ​defined​ ​as​ ​foods​ ​that​ ​are​ ​low​ ​in​ ​added​ ​fat,​ ​sugar,​ ​salt​ ​and/or​ ​caffeine​ ​and higher​ ​in​ ​vitamins,​ ​minerals​ ​and/or​ ​fibre​ ​and​ ​fall​ ​within​ ​at​ ​least​ ​one​ ​of​ ​the​ ​four​ ​food​ ​groups​ ​in Eating​ ​Well​ ​with​ ​Canada’s​ ​Food​ ​Guide​.​ ​Healthy​ ​beverages​ ​include​ ​water​ ​and​ ​drinks​ ​low​ ​in sugar,​ ​salt​ ​and​ ​caffeine,​ ​as​ ​well​ ​as,​ ​low​ ​fat​ ​milk. Procedures 1. The​ ​district​ ​recognizes​ ​the​ ​contribution​ ​that​ ​food​ ​service​ ​and​ ​vending​ ​operations​ ​make​ ​in influencing​ ​food​ ​choice​ ​and​ ​selection. 1.1

Therefore,​ ​foods​ ​and​ ​beverages​ ​sold​ ​in​ ​district​ ​schools​ ​must​ ​be​ ​consistent​ ​with Eating​ ​Well​ ​with​ ​Canada’s​ ​Food​ ​Guide​ ​and​ ​Alberta​ ​Nutrition​ ​Guidelines​ ​for​ ​Children and​ ​Youth​ ​(most​ ​recent​ ​version).​ ​Foods​ ​and​ ​beverages​ ​sold​ ​in​ ​schools​ ​or​ ​at school/district​ ​sponsored​ ​events​ ​must​ ​reinforce​ ​the​ ​messages​ ​delivered​ ​to​ ​students through​ ​Alberta​ ​Education’s​ ​Health​ ​and​ ​Life​ ​Skills​ ​and​ ​Career​ ​and​ ​Life​ ​Management curriculum​ ​about​ ​the​ ​importance​ ​of​ ​making​ ​healthy​ ​food​ ​choices.

1.2

All​ ​food​ ​and​ ​beverages​ ​available​ ​through​ ​vending​ ​machines​ ​and​ ​other​ ​food​ ​services will​ ​be​ ​compliant​ ​with​ ​the​ ​specifications​ ​outlined​ ​below.​ ​This​ ​is​ ​consistent​ ​with​ ​the “Serve​ ​Most/Serve​ ​Sometimes/Serve​ ​Least”​ ​categories​ ​found​ ​in​ A ​ lberta​ ​Nutrition Guidelines​ ​for​ ​Children​ ​and​ ​Youth​.

2. Food​ ​and​ ​beverages​ ​distributed​ ​in​ ​other​ ​ways​ ​such​ ​as​ ​breakfast​ ​and​ ​lunch​ ​programs, special​ ​lunch​ ​days,​ ​banquets,​ ​celebrations,​ ​class​ ​parties,​ ​etc.​ ​must​ ​also​ ​comply​ ​with​ ​the Eating​ ​Well​ ​with​ ​Canada’s​ ​Food​ ​Guide​ ​and​ ​Alberta​ ​Nutrition​ ​Guidelines​ ​for​ ​Children​ ​and Youth​ ​and​ ​follow​ ​the​ ​same​ ​guidelines​ ​for​ ​food​ ​and​ ​beverages​ ​sold​ ​through​ ​vending machines​ ​and​ ​other​ ​food​ ​services. 3. Food​ ​and​ ​beverage​ ​marketing​ ​influences​ ​food​ ​preferences,​ ​purchase​ ​behaviours​ ​and consumption.​ ​Therefore,​ ​it​ ​is​ ​the​ ​expectation​ ​of​ ​the​ ​district​ ​that​ ​there​ ​will​ ​be​ ​a​ ​consistent message​ ​regarding​ ​healthy​ ​food​ ​and​ ​beverage​ ​choices​ ​within​ ​each​ ​classroom​ ​and throughout​ ​schools.​ ​This​ ​includes​ ​positive​ ​role​ ​modelling​ ​by​ ​staff​ ​and​ ​other​ ​adults​ ​in​ ​staff rooms​ ​and​ ​other​ ​areas​ ​of​ ​schools.​ ​In​ ​addition,​ ​all​ ​communication​ ​formats​ ​such​ ​as​ ​posters, notices,​ ​newsletters,​ ​fundraising​ ​and​ ​web​ ​sites​ ​must​ ​convey​ ​the​ ​same​ ​message​ ​of​ ​healthy nutrition.​ ​The​ ​consistent​ ​message​ ​is​ ​that​ ​healthy​ ​food​ ​choices​ ​are​ ​available,​ ​affordable​ ​and promoted​ ​in​ ​schools. 4. While​ ​it​ ​is​ ​important​ ​to​ ​continually​ ​educate​ ​the​ ​school​ ​community​ ​regarding​ ​the​ ​benefits​ ​and affordability​ ​of​ ​healthy​ ​food​ ​choices,​ ​it​ ​is​ ​the​ ​right​ ​of​ ​parents/legal​ ​guardians​ ​to​ ​determine​ ​the food​ ​and​ ​beverage​ ​selections​ ​that​ ​their​ ​children​ ​bring​ ​to​ ​school​ ​for​ ​their​ ​own​ ​meals​ ​and snacks.​ ​In​ ​this​ ​context,​ ​respectful​ ​conversations​ ​with​ ​parents/legal​ ​guardians​ ​addressing​ ​the concept​ ​of​ ​moderation​ ​are​ ​important.​ ​Situations​ ​involving​ ​special​ ​dietary​ ​needs,​ ​allergies,​ ​or sensitivities​ ​will​ ​be​ ​supported​ ​on​ ​a​ ​case​ ​by​ ​case​ ​basis. 5. The​ ​manager,​ ​Business​ ​Services​ ​is​ ​responsible​ ​for​ ​the​ ​district​ ​contracts​ ​that​ ​are​ ​in​ ​place​ ​for Food​ ​Services​ ​(cafeteria)​ ​and​ ​vending​ ​machines​ ​(snacks​ ​and​ ​beverages)​ ​which​ ​result​ ​from the​ ​RFP​ ​process. 6. Annually,​ ​all​ ​schools​ ​must​ ​complete​ ​the​ ​Healthy​ ​Choices​ ​Survey​ ​which​ ​is​ ​updated​ ​annually. Approval​ ​Date:
