Bluey's Canteen

The Canteen aims to provide a variety of affordable and nutritious vegetarian meals and snack options to students and staff at Blue Hills College. Bluey's Canteen operates under the Home and School Association through the voluntary help of parents under the leadership of a Canteen Supervisor.  Volunteers are always needed and welcomed and their work is greatly appreciated.

The canteen complies with the NSW Healthy Schools Canteen guidelines, where food is allocated a colour coded rating (green, amber or red) according to the nutritional value.  The codes are based upon the level of salt, saturated fats and sugars the foods contain.

Green foods are everyday foods, such as fruit, vegetables and grains.  These foods are low in sugars, fats and salt and they form the bulk of Bluey’s menu.

Amber foods should be eaten in moderation as they provide some nutrients.  A limited number of amber foods are available at Bluey’s Canteen.

Red foods generally include food and drinks that are high in fat, sugar and salt, including soft drinks. BHC is not a nut-free campus.  Please contact the College if your child has an allergy to nut products.

Opening hours

Bluey’s Canteen is open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Food is available during recess and lunchtime. 
Tuesdays and Thursdays are lunch order days.
