A series of documents have been produced to support school meal providers in implementing Appetite for Life recommendations.

The documents are aimed at local authorities and in some instances, schools and other stakeholders for example governors to support Appetite for Life implementation.

The supporting documents include:

  • the latest Appetite for Life implementation guidelines
  • secondary school food-based standards assessment tool – to assess provision at school level
  • primary and secondary food-based standards posters – for using as a training tool with staff and/or pupils
  • stakeholder information – for local authority use with parents/carers and governors
  • pupils guidance document – for explaining the standards to pupil groups
  • complying with Appetite for Life recommendations
  • food and drink in after school clubs.

Please note that adopting the draft implementation guidelines is not currently a statutory requirement. However, all local authorities and schools in Wales are being encouraged to work towards the recommended nutritional food and drink standards set out in Appetite for Life.
