ACT school programs

Nutrition Australia ACT (NA ACT)  is a not-for-profit, non-government, community-based organisation and a division of one of Australia’s peak nutrition education bodies. Based on the latest science and research, qualified health professionals and educators provide a range of services for ACT primary and secondary school communities, including canteens, after school care, Parents and Citizens Associations, school principals and teachers. All of our services are tailored to specific ages and learning stages as appropriate to the school community.


Food&ME™ teachers' resource™ is a series of evidence-based nutrition education units (from Preschool to Year 8) linked to The Australian Curriculum: Health and Physical Education and aligns with the Australian Dietary Guidelines (2013).

Food&ME™ provides students with the opportunity to learn about the relationship between food and health, including the effect food choices can have on their bodies and mental wellbeing.
