The overall goal of the Healthy Kids website has remained the same for over a decade - to support teachers, parents, carers, coaches, health professionals, kids and teens to make healthy choices by providing a ‘one stop shop’ of current and credible information, resources and support materials about healthy eating and physical activity.
The website includes kid friendly recipes, ideas for physical activity and practical ways to improve nutrition, as well as specific factsheets for families and children. These resources are structured around five ways to a healthy lifestyle:
- Get active each day
- Choose water as a drink
- Eat more fruit and vegetables
- Turn off the TV or computer and get active
- Eat fewer snacks and select healthier alternatives.
Consumers, educators and health professionals are welcome to sign up for a quarterly e-newsletter for tips on helping kids and teens to eat well and get active.
