Guidelines for BC Schools
When students eat nutritious food, they are healthier and better learners. Healthy eating emphasizes fresh wholesome ingredients over packaged processed foods. When packaged and franchised foods are sold to students, the Brand Name Food List helps schools make sure those items meet the Guidelines established by the BC Ministries of Education and Health.
According to the Guidelines, at least half of the choices on display should be rated as ‘Choose Most’ and the rest of the items should be ‘Choose Sometimes’. ‘Choose Least’ and ‘Not Recommended’ items should not be sold.
