The EMSB aims at promoting health-enhancing attitudes and behaviours among all students by providing an environment encouraging healthy eating habits. By ensuring access to nutritious foods through our school cafeterias and our nutritional support programs, we contribute to the achievement of our students’ full academic potential. By teaching the essential knowledge and skills students need to make nutritious food choices, we contribute to the prevention of childhood nutrition-related problems such as obesity, diabetes and dental diseases.

Nutritional Support Programs

The EMSB ensures students in need have access to nutritious foods through our nutritional support programs. We offer breakfast, lunch, milk and snacks to numerous elementary and high schools on a weekly basis. These programs play an essential role in providing our students with nutrients needed for growth and optimizing their academic potential. All foods offered through our nutritional support program adhere to the EMSB Nutrition Policy.

EMSB Nutrition Policy

The EMSB Nutrition Policy (PDF) applies to all food distribution (sold or donated) to students in all EMSB schools and centres during regular school activities (cafeteria, daycare service, nutritional support program, lunch service, vending machine, reward program, regular fundraising and extracurricular activity). 

All administrators, teachers, staff, volunteers and governing boards have a responsibility to respect the Nutrition Policy by promoting/modelling healthy eating habits and distributing nutritious foods to students during regular school activities.

Parents can actively participate in the implementation of the Nutrition Policy by optimizing the nutritional quality and variety of foods brought to school. If you’re hungry for more practical information, we invite you to check out our Nutrition Resources section.
