We are proud to announce that Cardinia Life, Officer Community Hub and Pakenham Regional Tennis Centre have received their Healthy Choices accreditation!
Aligned Leisure, in partnership with Cardinia Shire Council and Monash Health, have been working together towards this Healthy Choices accreditation within Cardinia Shire recreation facilities. Each facility classified their food and beverages with the Healthy Choices traffic light system; green for the healthiest choice, amber items should be eaten in moderation and selected carefully, and red items are not essential and should be limited.
Since the commencement of the accreditation process, Cardinia Leisure facilities have reduced the availability of red menu items, including sugar sweetened soft drink beverages, by 77%. All three recreation facilities now offer over 50% green items, and under 20% red items. These changes collectively create healthy places for people to spend their time in, making the healthy choice the easy choice.
Come and join us on 23rd July 2019 from 10am to celebrate the official launch of Healthy Choices at Cardinia Leisure facilities and in creating a healthier community! A representative from the Healthy Eating Advisory Service will be presenting about the impact of the Healthy Choices initiative. Light morning tea sampling the healthy choices our cafes offer will also be provided.
