Supporting the Implementation of the Food for Sport Guidelines
The Queensland Government Food for Sport Guidelines were released in October 2010. With funding from the Queensland Government, the Australian Drug Foundation through their Good Sports Program has developed a program to assist clubs to implement the Food for Sport Guidelines. They provide supporting resources and ongoing support for clubs implementing the Good Sports Alcohol + Healthy Eating Accreditation Program.
NAQ Nutrition provided key input into the development of the Qld Government’s Food for Sport Healthy Food and Drink Supply Strategy as an active member of the Food for Sport Steering Group (2009-2011).
We are a Food for Sport Implementation Project partner, providing expert advice on nutrition and food supply strategy implementation to the Australian Drug Foundation’s Good Sports Program.
