The Becoming a Healthy Choices Club guidelines document aims to support healthy eating and beverage choices by implementing the Victorian Government’s Healthy choices: policy guidelines for sport and recreation centres across the organisation.
The Healthy Choices Guidelines use a traffic light system to classify foods and drinks based on their nutritional value, in line with Australian Dietary Guidelines recommendations. Using the Traffic Light Classification System is an effective way to monitor which foods to have often (green), moderately (amber) or rarely if at all (red).
These foods and drinks are the healthiest choices. Ensure they are always available and displayed prominently. Actively promote and encourage GREEN foods and drinks.
These foods and drinks should be selected carefully and consumed in moderation. Do not let AMBER items dominate the menu or choices displayed. Do not promote or advertise AMBER items at the expense of GREEN options. Offer healthier options within the AMBER category and avoid large serve sizes.
These foods and drinks should be consumed rarely and in small amounts. Availability and display of RED options should be limited and promotion and advertising of RED items should be avoided.
