HEALTHY EATING - Lvl 2

You only get out what you put in. Healthy eating is at the core of having a healthy body, which is a huge advantage, both on and off the field.

We know that sports clubs across the country are leading the charge when it comes to promoting physical fitness. With 60% of Australian adults and 25% of children and adolescents now classed as overweight or obese, it’s more important than ever to get people moving.

The Good Sports Healthy Eating Program focuses on:

  • Increasing the range of healthy food and drink options available
  • Safe food handling
  • Promoting water as the drink of choice
  • Promoting healthy food and drink options
  • Promoting healthy eating
  • Encouraging healthy fundraising activities and prizes
  • Creating a healthy food and drink policy

The benefits of the Good Sports Healthy Eating Program are:

  • Improved physical health of your members
  • Improved knowledge to help with healthy food and drink choices
  • Increased respect from sponsors and members for encouraging a healthy lifestyle
  • Increased revenue streams
