Fresh Tastes is a free ACT Government service that helps schools make healthy food and drinks a bigger part of everyday life for Canberra’s kids.

Fresh Tastes schools have access to financial grants, discounted services, professional learning, curriculum resources and incentives from partners to achieve their goals.

Schools involved in Fresh Tastes are given resources to help educate students about nutrition and health - like how to pack a healthy lunchbox or how to grow and cook fresh food.

We’re also helping schools create healthier canteen menus. Schools involved in Fresh Tastes are even able to offer discounts on buying fruit and veg to families.

It’s a fresh approach to promoting healthy food and drinks with kids – so why not get involved?
