Healthy Eating in Schools guidance 2020: supplementary information and advice on energy and key nutrients

This is supplementary guidance to the guidance book on Healthy Eating in Schools focusing upon providing information about the energy and key nutrients which form the basis for provision of school food and drink.


Introduction

All food and drink served in Schools in Scotland must comply with the Nutritional Requirements for Food and Drink in Schools (Scotland) Regulations 2020 which were introduced in April 2021 and replaced the Nutritional Requirements for Food and Drink in Schools (Scotland) 2008.

Heathy Eating in Schools 2020 (HES 2020) is the accompanying statutory guidance which supports implementation of those Regulations.

This supplementary guidance complements HES 2020 by providing information about the energy and key nutrients which form the basis for provision of school food and drink and, in particular, the nutrient standards set out in the 2020 Regulations which apply to school meals.
