We Work with: Healthy Kids Association

Healthy Kids Association is a not-for-profit, non-government health promotion charity based in Sydney, Australia. Their mission is to promote and influence healthy food choices for children.

Considering that one in four children in Australia are classified as being overweight or obese, Healthy Children Association aims to educate and empower families, children and school canteens to make the healthiest choices possible.

Their nutrition philosophy is one of balance that promotes the five food groups, variety and mindful eating - which I like.

How They Do It

Healthy Kids Association has a membership base consisting of more than 1,200 school canteens in NSW and the ACT.

Their members deliver healthy food menus that meet government guidelines and strategies and offer phone and email support in order to get canteens on the right track.

Their School Canteen Buyers’ Guides are mailed to schools Australia-wide each year. These guides are a thorough list of assessed food products and that meet the relevant nutrition criteria of that state/territory.

Healthy Kids Association works with governments to implement programs that encourage healthy food choices and communicate with parents through email and social media.
