The FACTS that motivate us

In Australia 95% of children and young people aged 2-18 years are struggling to achieve the recommended daily intake of  2 fruit and 5 veg.  Low fruit and veg intake can cause a range of health issues such as weight management problems, type 2 diabetes and can lead to unhealthy habits as an adult.  Our school incursions and workshops aim to prevent this from happening from an early age.  Our evaluation data shows promising results in children’s behavior change based around healthy eating when followed up after their school incursions.
