Food For Thought

Food for Thought is a nutrition education programme developed to support students to make healthier food and lifestyle choices.

The Food for Thought programme is available to all Primary Schools in New Zealand and specifically targeted to Year 5 and 6 students.

Food for Thought is absolutely free to participating schools and is unique in that it provides a nutritionist to deliver the programme. It has been developed around the New Zealand Education Curriculum with the assistance of a registered Nutritionist and several New Zealand registered teachers. It incorporates two classroom sessions, an inquiry learning session at a local Four Square, New World or PAK'nSAVE supermarket, a sponsored healthy lunch, a free Food for Thought lunchbox and a take home fridge magnet for continued learning in the home.

Food for Thought is now being implemented in schools nationwide through the Food for Thought Education Trust, the two Foodstuffs Cooperatives and through a partnership with the Heart Foundation.
