About Vic Kids Eat Well

Vic Kids Eat Well is an exciting new state-wide movement that’s focused on transforming the food and drink environments where kids spend their time. To do this, we are working with schools, Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) and a wide range of community organisations – such as sports clubs, community facilities and even the local pool to provide healthier food and drink options.

Vic Kids Eat Well focuses on four key actions and provides clear, simple and achievable steps to making healthy food and drink options available for kids. By harnessing the power of community and taking simple steps together, we can create change to give all kids across Victoria the healthy start they deserve. Vic Kids Eat Well is supported by the Victorian Government, and is delivered by Cancer Council Victoria’s Achievement Program, in partnership with Nutrition Australia’s Healthy Eating Advisory Service.

Your work with the Vic Kids Eat Well movement will support your organisation to meet the relevant food and drink policies and guidelines. To progress further, Vic Kids Eat Well sets your organisation on the right path for gaining Victorian Government recognition as part of the Achievement Program’s healthy eating benchmark.

About the Achievement Program

The Achievement Program is a free health and wellbeing program open to all Victorian schools, early childhood services and workplaces. It is supported by the Victorian Government, and delivered by Cancer Council Victoria. Members can create healthier learning and working environments by meeting a series of benchmarks for key health areas including healthy eating, physical activity and mental health and wellbeing. Organisations can receive Victorian Government recognition for the healthy changes they make.
