In this case study, a school in Austria introduces healthy snacks into the classroom.
In many primary schools in Austria, pupils usually bring their snacks from home. This is an additional job for parents to organise and sometimes, they are not always nutritious. Because of this, the primary school Meissnergasse decided to do something to address this. Together with an organic farmer and a bakery, they arranged to serve high quality organic fruit and other snacks in their school. The aim was that each class would get its own snack-box and each day, pupils would get a different organic snack. Through this, it was hoped that pupils would start to understand where their food comes from, get know to local food producers and be inspired to start growing their own herbs and fruits in the school garden.
