Healthy Choices – Choose well. Feel great

Good nutrition is important for a healthy lifestyle and contributes to the health and wellbeing of the community. Together with physical activity, healthy eating plays a key role in preventing disease, promoting wellbeing and productivity, maintaining a healthy weight, promoting better oral health and supporting children’s growth and development.
Healthy Choices is a framework for improving availability and promotion of healthier foods and drinks in community settings. The Harcourt, Castlemaine, Maldon and Newstead pool kiosks have implemented the guidelines for healthy eating with a range of healthy options for food and drink.
