Healthy Eating & Active Living

Prevention plan for East Gippsland 2019-2020 (Healthy eating and active living)

This plan guides the activity of EGPCP partners involved in the East Gippsland Healthy Eating and Active Living Partnership.

All prevention activity also aligns with the East Gippsland Well Placed for Wellbeing Plan (Municipal Public Pealth and Wellbeing Plan for East Gippsland).

Report on this plan now available here.

East Gippsland Healthy Eating and Active Living Partnership

The East Gippsland Healthy Eating and Active Living (HEAL) Partnership comprises of partner agencies and other interested community members who are committed to developing and implementing prevention strategies that focus on increasing positive health and wellbeing outcomes that affect the East Gippsland community.

Meetings are held every two months at various locations across East Gippsland. Any agency promoting healthy eating and physical activity to support their community (or has an interest in doing so) is welcome to attend meetings. Community members are also able to assist. If specific areas of interest arise within the group, smaller short-term working groups will be formed to progress work in the area - such as a large systems thinking project to reduce obesity.

New members must contact EGPCP prior to attending.

Healthy Eating Advisory Service

The Healthy Eating Advisory Service is delivered by experienced nutritionists and dietitians at Nutrition Australia (Victorian Division) and aims to help organisations provide and promote healthier foods and drinks to improve the health of all Victorians.

We work with early childhood services, outside school hours care, schools, workplaces, hospitals, sport and recreation centres, tertiary education and parks. We support these organisations to provide healthier foods and drinks in their menus and through catering, food outlets and vending. We also offer support to food industry, food outlets, caterers, and suppliers.

Visit the Healthy Eating Advisory Service website for information and resources for your organisation, including online and face-to-face training.
