Western Australian sport and recreation centres can now apply for new Healthy Venues grants
Local government and State-owned sport and recreation centres across Western Australia can now apply for Healthway's Healthy Venues Grants to access funding of up to $5,000 to implement a range of promotional, educational and environmental strategies to increase healthy food and drink choices.
The City of Swan is the first local government to be awarded funding under the new grants scheme and will implement healthy food and drink strategies at Swan Active Beechboro, Swan Active Midland and Swan Active Ballajura.
The Swan Active sites will develop a Healthy Food and Drink Policy to support catering and food rewards, adopt healthier food preparation practices, and offer education activities and events to promote healthy eating in the community.
The project will be co-ordinated with support from Healthway, local health service providers, venue operators, and the WA School Canteen Association.
Western Australia Health Minister Roger Cook notes "Children and families that attend Swan Active venues will soon be able to enjoy a range of healthier food and drinks while participating in sport and recreation activities.
"This is a great healthy eating initiative that local governments are well placed to champion.
"Creating healthier food and drink choices is vital for reducing the high rates of overweight and obesity among the WA community."
The Healthy Venues project aims to create healthier food environments at sport and recreation venues throughout WA.
