Posted by


You’re watching a Finish With The Right Stuff video. This is one of a series of
videos to help sports canteens create
and promote
simple healthier food to encourage kids to
finish with the right stuff.
Hi I’m Angie from Lalor Park Kookas,
thank you for joining me today
Today’s video is all about how to display healthier canteen options to
improve their sales
this will encourage healthier habits
in kids. By now you’ve watched the
video on how to make you canteen menu
healthier
so you could a good idea of what these
food and drink choices are
one of the first and most important
points to remember when it comes to
product placement is
if it’s green make it seen. Move
unhealthy items such as confectionery
cakes biscuits fried chips and crisp
packets to the back at the canteen
display area
and limit the variety you offer.
Display healthy items more prominently than
unhealthy items
display foods such as bowls of fresh
fruit or fruit salad cups
fruit spiced English muffins.
Bags of air-popped popcorn crackers and reduced
fat cheese packs
and yogurt and muesli cups to
encourage
healthy snack choices. When it comes to
the display of hot items your healthy
pasta
vegie soups rice and noodle dishes toasted
sandwiches and jaffles
corn on the cob and burgers with extra
salad on the top shelf
and at eye level. Next level down display
some lower fat and salt
versions of your regular, less healthy
items
such as low fat potato top pies, potato
wedges
and crumbed chicken products. Full-fat pies
and hot dogs should be harder to view
and limited in number. Using the Healthy
Kid’s buyers guide to select products
that have already been classified will
make it so much easier
you can find the guide at www.healthykids.com.au
The way you stock your
fridge can encourage healthier purchases
Water should fill the top few shelves of
the fridge making sure one of these is
at eye level
then you’ve got your reduced fat plain
milk followed by reduced fat
flavoured milk
on the next shelf down. The healthy food
in your fridge should also follow this
layout
pop your free based snacks such as fruit
cups low-fat yogurt cups
sandwiches and wraps sushi and snack
packs such as veggie sticks
and dip at eye level and right at the
bottom place unhealthy items
try to limit they said two different
choices that only fill one shelf
ideally you should aim for fifty percent
of healthy items in your fridge
the same goes for your pie warmer. some top
tip from today’s video
are display your fresh fruit and other
healthy items on your countertop
instead of chips biscuits lollies and
chocolate. Your pie warmer
and your fridge should be made up of
least 50 percent healthy food and drink
these items should be at the front at
eye level. Remember
water is the best choice for hydration
so it needs to be front and center.
