This Guide promotes a holistic and human rights-based approach to school food and nutrition. It also provides practical information and guidance to develop or strengthen national legislation to improve food security and nutrition in schools and presents a range of regulatory options and legislative examples of state practice that may contribute to building sound and coherent legal frameworks for school food and nutrition. It is intended for use by all actors involved in the design, implementation or monitoring of school policies and programmes and most particularly, those interested in taking legislative measures to improve food security and nutrition in schools as well as community development.
