Under this programme, participating pre-schools need to follow food service guidelines. These include:
- Cutting down fat, sugar and sodium
- Serving wholegrain, fruit and vegetables
- Serving healthy set meals
- These meals incorporate food from the four main food groups – brown rice, wholemeal bread, meat and others, vegetable and fruit. These help pre-schoolers receive the appropriate nutrients necessary for their growing needs.
Participating pre-schools are evaluated by assessors commissioned by HPB. Pre-schools which meet the guidelines will be certified and listed on HPB's website for easy reference. Pre-schools that are accredited are listed here.
