The Nutrition AP and what it means for class parties and birthday treats:

We're supper excited to introduce to you the Nutrition AP (Administrative Procedure). The health and well-being of our students at EICS is of utmost importance and therefore, our school district has implemented a Nutrition Administrative Procedure that will help encourage healthy eating and serves to reinforce the principles of healthy eating outlined in the Eating Well with Canada's Food Guide, and the Alberta Nutrition Guidelines for Children and Youth.

***Please note this Nutrition AP does not apply to your child's individual lunch or snacks. This AP does however apply to anything sent to school for class parties or for your child to share with his/her classmates (such as birthday treats)! Thank you for ensuring that anything sent to school to share with others is from the CHOOSE MOST OFTEN and CHOOSE SOMETIMES food categories!


Here is the link to the Alberta Health Services FOOD CHECKER as a resource to help (you can also download it as an app)!


Check out the frequently asked questions & answers about the Nutrition policy.
