School Nutrition Mentoring Project

The School Nutrition Mentoring Project brings an expert nutrition mentor and registered dietitian into participating schools in northern Saskatchewan. These experts work side-by-side with a local school nutrition worker, to improve the quality of the food served to students and advocate for healthy eating habits and healthy food choices.

 Healthy snacks

Since launching in 2014, the nutrition mentoring program focuses on breakfast, lunch, snacks or a combination thereof. Site visits include:

  • A practical learning session focused on menu planning
  • Troubleshooting challenges faced in the nutrition program
  • Preparing of and serving new, healthier menu items

Once a year, all those involved are invited to attend an in-person workshop to build a support network, learn from each other, and to continue to advance skills in food preparation and improve school menus.
