Trillium Lakelands District School Board will: model healthy food and beverage choices; provide opportunities for staff wellness. 1.3 The Board is therefore committed to ensuring that students and staff have equitable access to healthy food choices, and that they have opportunities to develop an appreciation for the value of proper nutrition as an integral part of their present andd future lives.

7 Appendix A An Implementation Resource for TLDSB Nutrition Policy and Procedure Introduction Schools are an ideal setting to promote healthy eating because children spend a significant amount of time there. School years are an influential time in a child s development, a time when lifelong eating patterns are formed (WHO, 1998). Students receivee nutrition education in the classroom (formal curriculum) and during school events that offer food (hidden curriculum) such as dances, track and field days, school nourishment programs, classroom celebrations, etc. It is essential that these food opportunities reinforce the healthy eating messagess that they learn in the classroom. When planning special events, celebrations or rewards thatt involve food in your school, refer to Board Policy and Procedure: Nutrition in TLDSB Schools ES-5050 & for appropriate choices. Guidelines for Coordinatin ng Healthy Food Items for Speciall Events When organizingg a special event or celebration in your school please refer to the following guidelines: Follow Eating Well with Canada s Food Guide and choose mostly foods of Maximum Nutritional Value* No foods of Minimumm Nutritional Value* should be offered Include a variety of fruit and vegetables Serve 100 % whole grain products Choose lean meats or alternatives Choose food items low in saturated and trans fat (% DV of 10% or less*) Offer water, milk (2% M.F. or less), or 100% fruit/vegetable juice *Foods of Maximum Nutritional Value: These foods are Good or excellent source of important nutrients (e.g., vitamins, minerals, protein and fibre). Generally low in added fat, sugar and/or salt. Found within one of the four food groups in Eating Well with Canada s Food Guide. Generally whole grains, vegetables and fruit, low fat milkk products and lean meats and alternatives. *Foods of Minimum Nutritional Value: These foods May provide few nutrients but are generally high in fat, added sugar, salt, caffeine and/or calories. Tend to be highly processed (e. g., with added colouring, deep fried, high in hydrogenated fats) *% Daily Value (DV): Read food labels! % D V on a label putss nutrients on a scale from 0% to 100%. This scale tells you if there is a little or a lot of a nutrient in one serving of a packaged food. *The School Food and Beverage Policy (PPM 150) is the minimum standard and allows schools up to a maximum of 10 special event days. The spirit of the TLDSB Nutrition Policy expects that schools will continue to create an environment where foods of maximum nutritional value are emphasized at all venues, through all programs and at all events.
8 Appendix A Food and Beverage Items of Minimumm Nutritional Value that Should Not be Served/Sold in the School or at Special School Events Food Mixed Foods/ Entrées Baked Goods Processed or Snack Foods Examples Hot dogs, corndogs or pogos Battered/breaded and fried items (e.g. French fries, fish, fish burgers or sticks, rib on a bun, onionn rings, chicken nuggets or burgers, chicken, zucchini, mushrooms, cheese) Processed, previously deep fried and oven-heated commercial products (e.g. chicken nuggets, chicken fingers, fries) Higher fat processed lunch meats (e.g. sausages, macaroni loaf, salami, pepperoni, bologna, wieners) Donairs Egg rolls Poutine Pastry-based pita pockets Sausage rolls Chicken wings Dried instant noodles and single serve driedd soup mixes Donuts Pastries turnovers, Danishes, croissants Cakes or cupcakes Tarts Pie Novelty Cakes Cookies with sweet filling, icing and/or chocolate Crisp rice cereal squares Granola bars dipped in chocolate or yogurt, or with chocolate chips, marshmallowss Candy hard, soft, chewy, etc. Liquorice Artificial fruit snacks and roll-ups Chocolate Gum (with sugar) Corn nuts Sesame snaps Fruit chips Fruit Jells or jellied desserts Popcorn Meal replacement bars, protein bars or energy bars Chips potato, corn, wheat or multigrain Cheesiest and flavoured puffs Chocolate bars
9 Appendix A Frozen Novelties Beverages Milkshakes (higher fat) Eggnogs Popsicles Freezies Sherbet Frozen novelties (e.g. drumsticks, ice cream) Hot chocolate made with water Meal replacement shakes or beverages Iced tea (all flavours) Energy drinks (e.g. Red Bull) or herbal drinks Pop - regular and diet Flavoured waters with added sugar Sports drinks Sweetened fruit beverages (e.g. drinks, aides, cocktails, punches) Sloshes (with added sugar) Lemonades Food for thought: Serving healthy foods makes a powerful statement. Action speakss louder than words. The following are suggestions to replacee the usual pepperoni pizzas, freezies, hot dogs, pop, chips etc. Food and Beverage Items of Maximum Nutritional Value that can be Served/Sold in the School or at Special School Events Snack Ideas (Dances, classroom celebrations, school open houses, Track and Field, Chess tournaments, funfairs, etc.) Whole fruit/fruit tray with a low fat yogurt dip Fruit kebabs Sliced water melon Canned fruit (in its own juice) Frozen fruit with yogurt Fruit & Yogurt Parfaits (use clear cups, layer vanilla yogurt with fruit chunks, top with low fat granola) Vegetablee trays with lower fat dip Hummus with whole grain pita or crackers Cheese with whole grain crackers, breadsticks Apple sauce and oatmeal cookie Trail mix made with high fibre cereal and pretzels (Recipe attached) Low fat and low sugar muffins (Recipe attached) Party sandwich trays (please refer to hot meals for special events) Hot chocolate made with real milk (2% M.F. or less) (Recipe attached) Yogurt cups Cheese strings Yogurt based drinks (15% DV of Calcium) and 2% M.F. or less Fruit smoothies Soy beverage
10 Appendix A Food Should Not be Used to Reward Good Behaviour Rewarding children in the classroom should not involve candy and other foods of Minimum Nutritional Value that can undermine children s health and reinforce unhealthy eating habits. Schools should practice the healthyy eating messagess as well as teaching them. Providing food based on performance or behaviour connects food to mood. This practice can encourage children to eat treats even when they are not hungry and can instil lifetime habits of rewarding or comforting themselves with food behaviours associated with unhealthy eating or obesity. Awarding children food during class also reinforces eating outside of meal or snack times. Since few studies have been conducted on the effect of using food rewards on children s long-term eating habits, the best policy is not to use food to reward children for good behaviour or academic performance. At minimum, childrenn should not be rewarded using foods of minimum nutritional value. Schools can help to promote a healthy learning environment byy using only non-food rewards when they choose to recognize positive behavior or classroom success. Examples of Beneficial (and inexpensive) Rewards forr Children SOCIAL REWARDS RECOGNITION PRIVILEGES REWARDS FOR A CLASS Social rewards which involve attention, praise, or thanks, are often more highly valued by children than a toy or food. Simple gestures like pats on the shoulder, verbal praise (including in front of others), nods, or smiles can mean a lot. These types of social rewards affirm a child s worth as a person. Trophy, plaque, ribbon, or certificate in recognition of achievement Sticker with an affirming message (e.g. Great job ). Recognizing a child s achievement on the school- A note from the teacher to the wide morning announcements student commending his or her achievement Going first Choosing a classs activity Helping the teacher Sitting by friends or in a special seat next to or at the teacher s desk Teaching the class Playing an educational computer or other game Extra recess Eating lunch outdoors Reading outdoors Dancing to music Playing a game or doingg a puzzle together Free choice time at thee end of the day A song, dance, or performance by the teacher or students.

Pencils: coloured, withh logos, or other decorations Pens Erasers Notepads/notebooks Boxes of crayons Stencils Stamps Plastic scissors Bookmarks Highlighters Pencil sharpeners, grips, or boxes Gift certificate to the school store Adapted from Center for Science in the Public Interest: http: :// No Time, Volunteers, Kitchen Space to Try Some of These Healthy Food Suggestions With limited time, funds, large retail store food selection, volunteers, and kitchen space, schools may need to be resourceful and creative to provide healthy alternatives for their students. The following tips have been successful in other TLDSB schools: Support local businesses. They appreciate the business. Inform them of the Nutrition Policy and provide them with a copy of these guidelines. Let them know that only healthy foods can be offered in schools and they must follow the nutrition policy. Try negotiating with a local restaurant, bakery or food producerr for discount prices on healthier items.
12 Appendix A Call the local grocery or general store and inquire about their services. Ask if they can cater fruit & vegetablee trays or healthy pizzas, mini-subs, fruit smoothies, or other items similar to the larger chain grocery stores. If your school does not have the facilities for food preparation, try partnering with a local church or service group that has an approved kitchen facility and someone trained in safe food handling. Consult with your local Health Unit to ensure food safety standards are met when doing any kind of food preparation. Making sure the food you serve is safe When planning a Special Event at your school please contact the Environmental Health Department at your locall Health Unit. Your Health Unit might require you to submit a Special Events permit form. Also remember, food allergies can be very serious especially in children; alwayss check to see if any student has allergies. Conclusion If you need assistance in implementation of the TLDSB Nutritionn Policy please contact the Public Health Dietician at your local Health Unit.

16 Appendix C Healthy fundraising It is Possible! Not all schools feel the need to fundraise but many do in order to support some school-wide bars or cookie dough, go events and initiatives. Many of the traditional types of fundraisers, such as selling chocolate against the healthy eating lessons taught in the classroom and do not support efforts of families and community members to eat well. Benefits Healthier fundraising: Encourages healthier habits (e.g. healthy eating, being physically active) Does not contradict classroom healthy eating education Generates income for the school Demonstrates the school s commitment to student health There may be a misconception that healthier products will not sell or that non-food fundraising activities are too hard to organize. More and more schools are finding healthier fundraising alternatives which are making healthy profits for their school. Criteria for Fundraising with Food School sponsored fundraising activities will promote non-food items. If schools choose to raise funds using food, they must ensure that food of Maximum Nutritional Value is used. No foods of Minimum Nutritional Valuee can be used to raise funds. Foods with Minimum Nutritional Value can be defined as: Foods that may provide few nutrients but are generally high in fat, added sugar, salt, caffeine and/or calories Foods that tend to be highly processed (e.g. with added colouring, deep fried, high in hydrogenated fats) May belong to the Other Food category in Canada s Food Guide to Healthy Eating Examples of some foods with Minimum Nutritional Value: Multi grain chips, rice marshmallow squares, Fruitopia, fruit roll ups, etc. For more information on categorizing of foods into Maximum, Moderate and Minimal Nutritional Value contact: Mary Ellen Deane Public Health Dietician, Simcoe Muskoka Districtt Health Unit Ext for schools in Muskoka Aisha Malik Public Health Dietician, Haliburton Kawartha Pine Ridge Health Unit, Ext for schools in City of Kawarthaa Lakes and Haliburton
