At Ipswich State High School, students are getting involved in the healthy food their tuckshop serves.
Wanting to do more than just gain practical food preparation experience in the Super Refueller Café (the school tuckshop), senior Hospitality students recently set up an online survey inviting students and families to have their say about the food that is served.
Simon Riley, Principal of Ipswich State High School, said it is important for students to eat healthy food, but it is also important for them to have their say.
'Finding out from the kids what they enjoy eating helps our tuckshop to plan healthy food choices that we know the students will eat,' Mr Riley said.
From delicious salads to fruit and yoghurt cups and hot meals made onsite, tuckshop staff and student helpers are dishing up menu options that are healthy and popular.
Ipswich State High School has won consecutive Healthy Menu awards from the Queensland Association of School Tuckshops (QAST) Tuckshop Awards. Winners of the 2019 awards will be announced at the QAST event on Tuckshop Day, Friday 1 November. For more information visit the
