Promoting Affordable, Healthy Snacks on Campus
In line with our commitment to healthy eating, Collège Champittet has taken steps to ensure students have access to nutritious snacks on campus. This includes our campus cafe, which offers healthy food and drinks at a more affordable cost than sweet, fatty or salty cafeteria products.
On our campus, we keep unhealthy snacks such as potato chips limited to certain hours of the day. We have also replaced certain items in the vending machine with healthier alternatives. In recent years, we began supplementing these efforts by displaying posters created by the Swiss Nutrition Society around our campuses. These posters, along with our more nutritious snack options, will ensure students are equipped to develop healthy habits.
In our dining room, we have taken extra measures to promote our greenest options and expanded our Fourchette Verte (“Green Fork”) offerings.
Our goal is for this approach to dissuade students from making poor food choices and pursue a balanced diet instead. Over time, this will help them to build long-lasting healthy habits.
