Eating for Success Program
2-week additive free food trials have been undertaken by Sue Dengate of the Food Intolerance Network in a number of Australian schools. The schools have found:
- quieter, calmer and more co-operative students, with longer concentration and improved co-ordination and focus; and
- NO headaches, stomach aches, asthma and skin rashes.
Principals and staff associated with these trials have enthusiastically advocated the results. “We average six detentions a week” reported Lawrie Renshall, Principal of Nana Glen Public School. “In that second week of the food trial we did not have one child on detention” (70-80 per cent of students fully participated). Data from Cooma North Public School showed the behaviour of about one in three children significantly improved. In children with behaviour problems there was an 86 per cent improvement.
Our Eating for Success program, which is based on Sue Dengate’s model, promotes reducing additives across the whole school environment.
The Eating for Success program is designed to highlight how food additives can affect behaviour; how food additives are identified on product labels; and what safe commercial foods are available without problem additives. This is achieved by using Powerpoint presentations, video clips, hands-on activities and handouts.

- Teachers Information Session
