School Nutrition and Healthy Eating

Children need healthy, nutritious food to grow and learn. Currently over 3 million children in Canada are living without guaranteed access to nutritious school meals.

A re-elected Liberal government will:

  • Work with our provincial, territorial, municipal, Indigenous partners, and stakeholders to develop a National School Food Policy and work towards a national school nutritious meal program with a $1 billion dollar investment over five years.
  • Introduce new restrictions on the commercial marketing of food and beverages to children and establish new front-of-package labelling to promote healthy food choices.
