A short evaluation summary (PDF, 257KB) of the findings and recommendations is also available.

The findings from this evaluation indicate that at the time of the survey, Queensland state schools:

  • supported the rationale for introducing Smart Choices
  • made significant efforts in a short period of time to implement Smart Choices across all areas of food and drink supply
  • took steps to engage the wider school community in implementation of Smart Choices
  • accessed resources and attended training sessions to gain further understanding of Smart Choices.

The evaluation found that the overall implementation of Smart Choices was high with:
