Well done. We would like you to now compare your percentages of each category with
the percentages we have provided below. Many food services will have a higher level of red foods and a lower level of green foods than is recommended. That’s not a problem.

Your mission now is to modify your menu so that it meets the recommendations below, giving your customers a healthier range of foods and drinks from which to choose.

 

These foods and drinks are the healthiest choices and should be encouraged and promoted on the menu as foods to be eaten everyday. They are good sources of nutrients and are usually low in saturated fats, and/or added sugars and/or salt.

These foods should be:

•    Available from all food services at your venue

•    Actively promoted as healthier options

•    Prominently displayed in comparison to Amber and Red foods

•    Priced competitively in comparison to Amber and Red foods

 

These foods and drinks should be selected carefully to add variety to the menu and eaten in moderation. They have some nutritional value, may contain moderate levels of saturated fat, and/or added sugar and/or salt. They can, especially in larger serves, provide too many kilojoules (calories) making it easy to put on weight.

These foods should be:

•    Limited on the menu — look for a Green alternative

•    Offered in small serve sizes

•    Not actively promoted or advertised

 

These foods and drinks are usually high in kilojoules (calories) and low in essential nutrients. They can also be high in saturated fat, and/or added sugar and and/or salt. Everyone knows these foods as “treats” and therefore they should be eaten occasionally.

These foods should be:

•    Limited or removed from the menu — look for a Green or Amber alternative

•    Only available in small serve sizes

•    Not actively promoted or advertised
