support the Vic Kids Eat Well initiative, the exciting new state-wide movement
that’s focused on boosting healthy food and drink options in the places

clubs, recreation facilities, council operated facilities and more.
Vic Kids Eat Well provides clear, simple and achievable steps to making healthy food and drink options available and includes four key actions:
By harnessing the power of community and taking these simple steps together, we can create change to give all kids across Victoria the healthy start they deserve.
Vic Kids Eat Well is supported by the Victorian Government, and is delivered by Cancer Council Victoria’s Achievement Program, in partnership with Nutrition Australia’s Healthy Eating Advisory Service.

Any business, company, organisation, early childhood service or school can register for the Achievement program through the website.
By registering, you will gain access to the online portal and be assigned an Achievement Program support officer who will assist you in meeting benchmarks within each of the health priority areas.
The healthy workplaces program contains five health priority areas: Healthy Eating, Physical Activity, Mental Health and Wellbeing, Smoking and Alcohol, and Other Drugs.
The early childhood service and school program involve six health priority areas: Healthy Eating and Oral Health, Physical Activity and Movement, Mental Health and Wellbeing, Sun Protection, Safe Environments and Tobacco, Alcohol and Other Drugs.
Within each program, the benchmarks guide the organisation/services healthy changes through the physical environment, policies, practices, and culture. By working through the process, you are not only gaining recognition for being a health-promoting environment, but you are supporting the health of those who interact in your organisation.
