+ MAKING IT EASIER TO MAKE HEALTHIER NUTRITION CHOICES
The way we do it: Healthy Families Invercargill takes a collective approach when it comes to helping create a community where the healthy choice is the easy choice. We are about thinking bigger, working together with the community, and activating leadership at all levels to drive sustainable, healthy change. It's about working with local leaders to find local solutions.
SHOWCASING COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP
Healthy Families Invercargill is working with the leaders in the community, and community champions to activate and support changes in the local food system. Take a look at some of the ways our community champions are making a difference.
Healthy Families Invercargill has teamed with local food establishments on the Healthier Choice concept – a simple initiative which allows them to easily let their customers know which of their foods is a healthier option.
One of the main roles of Healthy Families Invercargill is to understand our community's needs. To this end, we work extensively with community organisations and champions to gather the voice of the community, and community insights, which are then used to inform decision making processes at high end level. Below are examples of the work we have done in this area.
