NSW Government taking care of the elderly

Elderly people are more susceptible to falls for a number of reasons. It is well known that those who experience a fall have poorer health outcomes. The NSW Government has developed a fantastic initiative that is aimed at preventing falls in older Australians living in the community. Stepping On is a seven week program that covers a range of issues for seniors, including falls, exercises and nutrition. As we age, requirements for certain nutrients change, which is covered in Stepping On.

Multicultural Health Week 2018

Multicultural health week is coming up soon, from the 3rd to the 9th of September. The theme for this year is Health Literacy with the tag line ‘Talk, Listen, Ask – for better health’. The aim this year is to raise health workers’ awareness of the importance of health literacy when working with people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

Health Promotion Project – NSW Government helping children reach fruit and veg targets

Did you know that only 5% of Australian children eat their recommended intake of vegetables? When children aren’t eating fruit and vegetables at school, it’s almost impossible for them to reach their recommended intakes. Children need the nutrients from fruit and vegetables to learn, grow and play. Crunch and Sip is a NSW Government initiative, which gives students a dedicated time during the school day to eat fruit and veg and to rehydrate with water.

Health Promotion Project – one way to ensure children eat healthy lunches at school

Nutrition Australia NSW is proud to announce the launch of the Healthy Lunchbox Workshop as part of the Health Promotion Project, funded by NSW Health and SESLHD. The Health Promotion Project has been developed to contribute to the NSW Healthy Eating and Active Living Strategy, NSW Health and NSW Premier’s Priority Tackling Childhood Obesity.
