Policy on food in schools
The joint Department of Education and Department of Health Food in Schools Policy “Healthy Food for Healthy Outcomes” is available in both English and Irish along with an easy read version. The policy articulates the Departments’ policy in relation to all food in schools, support available, roles, responsibilities, and funding. This policy applies to all grant-aided schools.
The Department of Education issued Circular 2013/21 Healthy Food for Healthy Outcomes to inform schools about the introduction of the policy.
