Rory’s School Lunches follows the healthy eating guidelines recommended by the State Government of South Australia.

  • Green Foods – food that can be eaten every day.  Green foods are lower in saturated fat and sodium and include salads, hot meals with lean cuts of meat and low-fat cheeses and dressings.Rory's School Lunches snack cups
  • Amber Foods – Amber foods are more processed than green foods.  They may contain higher levels of saturated fat, sugar and sodium than green foods.  Students are encouraged to choose carefully from this section. Amber products should not dominate student’s choices.
  • Red Foods – Red foods are highly processed, energy-dense and poor in nutrients.  Remember, red foods should only be eaten occasionally so limit your intake.
