Healthy Eating & Active Living


Healthy Choices 2016-2018

Eastern Health Executive committed to the Healthy Eating Benchmark of the State Government Achievement Program in late 2014.

This commitment led to the development of the Healthy Choices Project Group and the ongoing Implementation of the Victorian Healthy Choices framework across seven Eastern Health retail sites that provide food and drinks across five campuses.

Eastern Health staff have worked closely with their retail and vending suppliers, aiming to increase the availability of healthy foods and drinks to staff and the general public accessing the facilities.

The Healthy Choices Project Group has been involved in a number of strategic interventions to reduce the availability of 'red' category foods and drinks and to increase the availability of 'green' category foods and drinks.
