We Operate a Canteen

Sporting organisations with a canteen can make many small changes to easily boost the amount of nutritious food and drinks available. The tips and tools contained within this Healthy Eating resource allow you to choose what works best for your organisation.

You don’t need to make all of the suggested changes to create positive change. And you don’t have to implement changes in any particular order. Have a look at what similar sporting organisations to yours have done and learn from their experience. Pick out what you think will work for your organisation. Start with simple changes and work up to more comprehensive changes over time.
