For years now, eCanteen has been making canteen ordering easy, convenient and available at any time of the day. To help schools promote healthier options available on their canteen menu, we've added the ability for canteen managers to indicate the health classification of each menu item, to help parents make an informed decision when selecting items for their orders.
Available in the canteen menu editor area, an indicator from the red, amber and green food health traffic light system can be selected. The selected indicator will be clearly display next to the item on the school menu for parents. Each of the three different indicator options are described below, as documented by the Healthy Eating Advisory Service of Victoria.
Green - everyday
Amber - sometimes
Red - occasional
eCanteen is an online order processing system for schools. It can be used on any device without the need for installation. It is mobile compatible as a free simple app installed from the website without any need of an app store.
The eCanteen online ordering system is designed with parents in mind. Many of its features are designed to make the process of ordering from the canteen convenient and simpler for parents of students. These features include:
Login with a Facebook, Google or Microsoft Account to cut down on having to remember yet another login. Don’t have one of these, don’t worry it’s easy to sign up to one of these providers for free.
Manage your own students
Your account allows you to create profiles for multiple students across multiple schools (should those schools be using the eCanteen online ordering system). This stores the details of your students and allows you to process orders for one or more children in a single transaction, rather than having to place individual orders for each student.
Order up to a week in advance
Not only does eCanteen allow you to order for multiple students, it also allows for you to place all your orders for the current week. Cut off times are set by your school’s canteen, so please check to make sure you complete your order for a day before the cut off time.
eCanteen is making it even easier for school canteens to promote healthier options, allowing schools to optionally select a health classification for each item which enables parents to make an informed decision about the items that they are adding to their child's lunch order.
Easy, secure payment
All payments are processed by PayPal. PayPal is a trusted payment processing site which gives you security in knowing your details are securely stored, so you don’t have to enter them every time. PayPal allows you to use either a credit card or bank account and keeps a record of all payments made.
