For parents

A message to parents about Fresh Tastes

Around one quarter of Canberra’s kids are overweight or obese - it’s a worrying fact. As well as not being active enough, today’s kids aren’t eating enough nutritious food, and they’re drinking more sugary drinks than ever before.  

The ACT Government is working with the community to change things for the better. That’s where Fresh Tastes helps! We’re supporting ACT primary schools to make healthy food and drinks a bigger part of everyday life for students. Most Canberra schools are involved in Fresh Tastes and making a real difference.

Watch this video to learn how Fresh Tastes can support your child's school.
