For years now, eCanteen has been making canteen ordering easy, convenient and available at any time of the day. To help schools promote healthier options available on their canteen menu, we've added the ability for canteen managers to indicate the health classification of each menu item, to help parents make an informed decision when selecting items for their orders.
Available in the canteen menu editor area, an indicator from the red, amber and green food health traffic light system can be selected. The selected indicator will be clearly display next to the item on the school menu for parents. Each of the three different indicator options are described below, as documented by the Healthy Eating Advisory Service of Victoria.
Green - everyday
Amber - sometimes
Red - occasional
