Positive Feedback on Healthy Choices Guidelines Workshop


Feedback from the Healthy Choices Guidelines Workshop on Tuesday 18th October with Kate Wilkinson from Nutrition Australia was that the session was both positive and engaging, with one SSA representative saying “this is the nutrition information we have needed to understand and be able to explain and engage sports clubs/canteens”. The simple ways to change ‘Amber’ classified foods to healthier ‘Green’ classified foods was explained, along with fantastic nutrition resources available to clubs who are aiming to achieve the healthy choices guidelines.

We have been fortunate to capture Kate’s presentation on video. Please see the video at the bottom of this article.

AusPlay survey results released by Australian Sports Commission

The Australian Sport Commission (ASC) recently released the results of the Ausplay survey – a large scale national population tracking survey funded and led by the ASC. This is great news for the sport sector, as there has been a lack of up-to-date national participation data since the release of the ABS Sport and Recreation: A Statistical Overview, Australia in 2012 and the ASC’s Participation in Exercise, Recreation and Sport (ERASS) in 2010.
