Healthy staff morning teas

Healthy eating isn't just for students, it's important for staff members too! Your school's weekly staff morning tea or get-together is the perfect time to celebrate and promote events such as March Munch and The Great Vegie Crunch.

Why not host a healthy staff morning tea where staff are encouraged to put away the party pies and chocolate bickies and bring out healthy, yummy morning tea treats instead?

What to bring:

If there's no time for cooking, try these:

  • Seasonal fruit platter with honeydew melon, strawberries, apple, pawpaw and pear. Drizzle with lemon juice to delay the fruit going brown.
  • Veg platter - cut up carrot, capsicum and cucumber or the no-cut version of snow peas and cherry tomatoes. Serve with store-bought hummus or low-fat cream cheese.
  • Fruit chunks skewered into kebabs
  • Spread fruit bread with low-fat cream cheese or ricotta mixed with a little honey.
  • Fruity Wraps
  • Sandwiches cut into triangles with toppings such as avocado, cucumber and spinach leaves or sliced hard-boiled egg, lettuce and tomato.
  • Nibbles such as nuts, cheese and popcorn (just try to avoid the varieties high in salt, sugar or fat).
