Ontario student nutrition programs provide nutritious breakfast, morning meals, lunch and/or snacks to children and youth to support their learning and healthy development. To ensure healthy and nutritious food options, programs should follow and apply the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services (MCCSS) Student Nutrition Program Guidelines (2016). For more information on student nutrition programs, contact your local health unit or visit Student Nutrition Ontario to find a regional contact.
