Agreement ‘Healthy Food in Schools’
School has a significant impact on the lives of young people. Therefore, a healthy diet in schools can provide an essential basis for a healthy lifestyle for these young people. To achieve this, we have signed the Healthy Food at Schools Agreement (2016 – 2020), managed by Jongeren Op Gezond Gewicht (translation: Young People At A Healthy Weight). With this Agreement, caterers, vending machine suppliers, manufacturers and other suppliers take responsibility for healthier food in schools. This means that Van Leeuwen Catering will meet the ‘Silver’ level according to the Nutrition Centre’s Guidelines for Healthier Canteens at the schools we serve. In addition, we aim to achieve the ‘Gold’ level by 2020 in 25% of the schools we serve. This Agreement is the successor to the Charter ‘Healthier Food in Schools’. In 2015, 105 schools met this guideline. Van Leeuwen Catering operated three-quarters of them.

We cooperate with various bodies and organisations that promote healthy living. Our partners include GGD Netherlands, the organisation for the election of the Sportiest School, and HFM (Healthy Food Movement), a collaboration of companies from the Westland region.
