Traffic Light System 

Did you know?....... Children can consume up to one-third of their daily nutritional intake at school. As many children regularly purchase food for the College tuckshop, it is important that the tuckshop provides a wide variety of foods from the five food groups and promote and model healthy food choices.

Based on the Australian Dietary Guidelines for Children and Adolescents and The Australian Guide to Healthy Eating (AGTHE), the 'Traffic Light System' was developed to assist Australian Tuckshops with making selections on food and drinks to make available in schools.

Food and drinks have been classified into three categories according to their nutritional value: Green, Amber and Red.

GREEN - 'Have plenty'
Encourage and promote these foods and drinks.

These food and drinks are:

  • are excellent sources of important nutrients
  • are low in saturated fat and/or added sugar and/or salt
  • help to avoid an intake of excess energy (kilojoules or calories)

Examples: Breads, fruit, vegetables, low fat dairy food, lean meat, fish and poultry.

AMBER - 'Select carefully'
Do not let these foods and drinks dominate the choices and avoid multiple servings.

These food and drinks are:

  • have some nutritional value
  • have moderate amounts of saturated fat and/or added sugar and/or salt
  • can, in large serve sizes, contribute excess energy (kilojoules or calories)

Examples: Processed meats, spreads and sauces, snack food bars, full fat dairy, fruit juice, refined breakfast cereal.

RED - 'Occasional'
These food and drinks are:

  • lack of adequate nutritional value
  • are high in saturated fat and/or sugar and/or salt
  • can contribute excess energy (kilojoules or calories)

Examples: Sugar and artificially sweetened drinks, confectionary/lollies, deep fried food/chips, cakes and sweet pasties.

Whilst Saint Mary's Catholic College Tuckshop endeavours to provide a healthy tuckshop menu through food verities and portion sizes, it relies upon the students, staff and parents to also make appropriate choices. To assist with the process, each item has been marked with the respective sticker according to which colour category it fits.
