Healthy At Home Community Projects Sub Healthy At Home Projects

Need

Qld Cricket identified the poor food choices available at many sporting clubs were inconsistent with healthy lifestyle messages supporting good nutrition and physical activity.

Solution

To make the healthy choices the easy choices at selected Qld cricket clubs by guiding and supporting the introduction and promotion of healthy food choices through the Bowled Over by Good Food Project (2009-2010). Project funded by Qld Government Department of Communities community partnership grants program.

Outcomes

All cricket clubs in this project moved towards creating environments more supportive of healthy eating. Through experience gained in this and previous food supply implementation projects (e.g. Smart Choices and A Better Choice) and other projects with sporting clubs, we are now valued partners in the Qld Dept of National Parks, Recreation, Sport and Racing’s “Food for Sport” Implementation Project and the Australian Drug Foundations Good Sports + Healthy Eating Accreditation Program for sporting clubs
