Healthy Meals in Pre-schools Programme

Share and Print

The Healthy Meals in Pre-schools Programme (HMPP) empowers pre-schools to provide healthier meals and encourages them to educate children on eating right. As pre-schoolers who attend child care centres or kindergartens spend a major part of their day there, these pre-schools play a vital role in helping them cultivate healthy eating habits. 

Criteria and Guidelines

Under this programme, participating pre-schools need to follow food service guidelines. These include:

  • Cutting down fat, sugar and sodium
  • Serving wholegrain, fruit and vegetables
  • Serving healthy set meals
    • These meals incorporate food from the four main food groups – brown rice, wholemeal bread, meat and others, vegetable and fruit. These help pre-schoolers receive the appropriate nutrients necessary for their growing needs.

Participating pre-schools are evaluated by assessors commissioned by HPB. Pre-schools which meet the guidelines will be certified and listed on HPB's website for easy reference. Pre-schools that are accredited are listed here.
