Healthy Kids
Healthy Kids Association is proud to partner with Your Health Link National Photographic Competition in 2018 and we can’t wait to see the amazing photos which capture the theme: Healthy Life Healthy You!
Healthy Kids Association (HKA) has been promoting and influencing healthy food choices for children since 1991 and is the primary source of advice on healthy food choices for around 3,200 schools in NSW and the ACT.
We believe that teaching healthy eating habits at a young age can change a person’s life for the better and we aim to educate and empower families, children and school canteens to make the healthiest food choices possible. Our nutrition philosophy is one of balance, that promotes the five core food groups, variety and mindful eating.
Our organisation provides a wide range of services targeting school canteens, teachers, parents, the food industry, other health promotion organisations and government departments.
At our core, Healthy Kids supports and assists school canteens to implement a healthy and profitable canteen strategy to positively impact the choices children make about food.
We also run important health education programs in schools including Fruit and Veg Month, Vegetable Week and the Big Vegie Crunch, supported by the Ministry of Health.
Additionally, Healthy Kids works closely with food and beverage manufacturers to encourage the development and registration of foods that meet the NSW and other state government’s criteria, and we support school canteens to develop menus using these products through our comprehensive Buyers Guide.
