Healthway has announced a new Healthy Sporting Clubs Program to support WA club’s provide healthier menus at club run canteens and kiosks.

Clubs competing in a recognised winter 2019 competition can apply for up to $4,000 to support good nutrition strategies.

The WA School Canteen Association will provide free training and work with clubs across the season to prepare healthier menus.

Clubs are encouraged to download the Application Guidelines and start thinking about how they can create a healthier venue for players, members and spectators.

Contact Michelle Riekie from the WA School Canteen Association on 9264 4999 or email for more details.

Applications can be lodged through Healthway’s eApplication portal and will close 12 noon on Friday, 17 May 2019.

Traffic lights on the menu

Fuel to Go & Play uses a traffic light system to rate food and drinks as green, amber or red, based on their nutritional value. This makes it easier for clubs to offer healthier choices.

Healthy Sporting Clubs are encouraged to increase the availability and promotion of healthier choices using the traffic light system.
