Healthy Eating Programs
in Australians Schools

We have a simple vision:

To nourish students' bodies and mind.

How gather by Cater Care helps improve healthy eating programs in Australian schools.

Given eating behaviours of children and adolescents are shaped at a young age and tend to be followed throughout adulthood.

A healthy eating program has been specifically designed to support the nutritional requirements and challenges of boarding students.

It has a holistic focus, which includes:

1. Providing nutritionally balanced menus

reviewed, amended and approved by our Dietitian team, ensuring each one meets the recommendations of the Australian and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Guide to Healthy Eating, and supports students food education with a range of flavours, textures and cuisines.

2. Ongoing training and support

Ensuring ongoing training and support for our site based teams from our corporate nutrition, culinary and marketing teams.

When our girls go home, their parents would comment on how healthy they look. There is an actual physical change in these kids.
We are able to send them home feeling well, and that is very important.

3. Dietetic support and a healthy lifestyle

Promoting healthy lifestyle topics with messaging and imagery that is informative, positive and motivational and encourages the development of healthy eating behaviours, which research shows are shaped at a young age and tend to be followed throughout adulthood.

4. Satisfaction program

Actively seeking feedback from our clients, their students and staff regarding engagement and satisfaction with the program so it can continue to be shaped to suit their needs.

Meet Kevin Alley

As Cater Care’s Indigenous Participation Manager, I am proud to play a role in supporting the gather by Cater Care team and our clients to deliver positive mealtime experiences for indigenous students and improve the healthy eating programs in Australian Schools.

The number of boarding schools hosting Indigenous students has grown rapidly over the past decade, and food plays an enormous role in easing the stress during the transition from the community to boarding life.
