The New Zealand national HPS strategic framework is values driven. It takes a socio-ecological and school community development approach. This framework recognizes the interactions between individuals, their behaviours/lifestyles, and the impact of the wider physical, social and cultural environment in a school community. The framework acknowledges the complexity and interaction of a broad range of variables in supporting positive educational and health outcomes in a school community.





This strategic framework is included in the “International Network for Food and Obesity / non-communicable Diseases Research, Monitoring and Action Support”(INFORMAS) “Benchmarking Food Environments: Experts’ Assessments of Policy Gaps and Priorities for the New Zealand Government” within the Food Provision policy domain as an example of an initiative in New Zealand aimed at providing good support and training systems to help schools and other public sector organisations and their caterers meet the healthy food service policies and guidelines.  The full report can be accessed from: https://www.fmhs.auckland.ac.nz/en/soph/global-health/projects/informas/...
