The KEY FACTS that motivate us

In Australia 2.5% of of young people aged 5-14 years ate 2 fruit & 5 vegetables every day.  Worrying they are eating more junk food than ever before, with 33% of their energy intake coming from ‘discretionary choices’, which increases to 41% for 14-18 year olds (AIHW 2019).

Our secondary school incursions and workshops aim to prevent this from happening from an early age.  Our evaluation data shows promising results in younger persons eating behavior change when followed up after our education classes.
