Lunch will be on the menu for all public education students if Rebecca White becomes the next Premier of Tasmania.
As part of its education policy, Ms White announced during the election campaign that a school lunches program would be rolled out across all public schools over six years.
On Wednesday, Ms White was joined by federal Labor Party deputy Tanya Plibersek to spruik the policy, which they both say will improve learning outcomes for Tasmanian students.
"There's been a trial run by the government over the last year, and what it's proven is that school attendance increases engagement and you get better outcomes," Ms White said.
"It's a way not only to make sure kids have a full belly, but that they can listen and learn and concentrate while they are in class."
School lunches are commonly provided by the government across the world, such as in Europe and it's had great success.
The Liberal Party has not committed to implementing a similar program if they win the election on Saturday, but have their own education policy that focus on more teachers and infrastructure.
Ms Plibersek said the policy was a popular one, and showed how the Tasmanian Labor Party was in tune with the needs of families.
"They [the Tasmanian Labor Party] get what families are facing. They understand that kids learn better and concentrate better when they're not hungry. But they also understand families are under a lot of financial pressure. This program will help kids, but it helps mums and dads as well," she said.
Ms Plibersek stopped short of saying the party would endorse the policy nationally ahead of the next federal election, but said they hoped to see it rolling out in Tasmania by that time.
The program will be funded by the party and includes funds for infrastructure upgrades along with cafeteria staff.
Ms White said the police would also alleviate the stress and anxiety faced by parents when compiling their children's' lunch boxes.
"This will take a lot of pressure off families who are every morning pulling lunch boxes together and seeing the same things returning each afternoon," she said.
The policy was developed in conjunction with the Tasmanian School Canteen Association and Ms White said feedback was positive.
