Healthy canteens in sporting clubs and leisure centres

Sporting clubs and leisure centres can play an important role in providing healthy environments and promoting healthy messages.

The food and drink on offer at your venue can send clear messages to the community about healthy options.

Your venue can help teach children and adolescents how to choose healthy food and drinks.

Also, you can increase profits by 10–15 per cent just by making your club or leisure centre’s menu healthier.

Click on the video below to see how easy it is to make changes to your club’s menu.

The Healthy Canteens team uses the Fuel to Go Program (external site) – an online Guide to providing healthier food and drinks at sporting, recreation and entertainment venues.

Learn more about what clubs have been able to achieve by reading the Fuel to Go newsletters (external site).

The Healthy Canteens team has been set up to help you implement the Fuel to Go Program. They can help you to:

  • create a healthier menu
