Healthy Eating + Sport


Evidence shows that there is a strong connection between the physical, mental, social and health benefits of participating in physical activity and leading a healthy lifestyle. The sport industry is the largest community sector in Victoria, providing sporting organisations with a wide reach to communicate and promote healthy eating throughout communities.

Sport already promotes healthy lifestyles and by providing and promoting healthy food and drinks as part of the experience, positive changes to improve the health and wellbeing of their community can be achieved.

Promoting healthy eating in sport settings can be achieved using numerous strategies such as providing and promoting healthy food and drink choices to customers via fundraising, in canteens and vending machines, at staff meetings, functions, workshops, events your organisation runs, the and/or the food and drinks provided to players, volunteers and spectators during training and on game day.
