Healthy Meal Plan For Preschoolers 

Under this programme, participating schools need to follow the food services guidelines. These include:

  • Cutting down fat, sugar and salt

  • Serving whole grains, fruit and vegetables

  • Serving healthy set meals

    • These meals incorporate food from the four main food groups – brown rice and wholemeal bread, meat and others, vegetable and fruit. These help students receive the appropriate nutrients necessary for their growing needs.

For more details on HMPP, You can refer to the Healthy Meals in Pre-schools Programme (HMPP) Toolkit 2018.​​ Pre-schools that are accredited from April 2017 to March 2019 are listed here.

Support for Pre-schools

We provide culinary training, consultations and assessments for participating pre-schools. During the culinary training workshops, we advise the pre-schools’ cooks and supervisors on the following: 

  • Menu planning and healthier cooking methods

  • Using healthier ingredients such as brown rice

  • Appropriate portioning of food for children.

For your reference, we have compiled a list of suppliers that provide healthier food and ingredients.

Our assigned assessors will evaluate participating pre-schools.
