Healthy Kids Association is a not-for-profit, non-government health promotion charity based in Sydney, Australia. Our mission is to promote and influence healthy food choices for children. Nowadays, one in four children in Australia are classified as being overweight or obese. Our children are our future and we believe teaching healthy eating habits at a young age can change a person’s life for the better. We aim to educate and empower families, children and school canteens to make the healthiest choices possible. Our nutrition philosophy is one of balance that promotes the five core food groups, variety and mindful eating.
Healthy Kids Association has a membership base consisting of more than 1,200 school canteens in NSW and the ACT. We work with our members assisting them to deliver healthy food menus that meet government guidelines and strategies. We offer phone and email support as well as recipe and menu reviews in order to get canteens on the right track.
We work with governments to implement programs that encourage healthy food choices. We currently hold a two year contract to provide resources to support the Crunch&Sip program and to administer the Fruit & Veg Month program in NSW primary schools. These two programs encourage healthy eating, in particular fruit, vegetable and water consumption.
