feedAustralia event: Improving nutrition and health literacy for children

Information sessions will be held in Primary Health Tasmania offices in Hobart, Launceston and Ulverstone on 22 February about the Australian Government’s feedAustralia program, which is focused on improving nutrition and health literacy for children.

The sessions are for anyone with an interest in improving nutrition and health education for children, including early childhood education and care providers; cooks; local government; policy makers; regulators; and allied health professionals.

feedAustralia has been developed through a partnership with the University of Newcastle, Hunter New England Population Health and Healthy Australia, to provide early childhood education and care providers with a free and seamless 'business as usual' online menu planning tool, built and trialled specifically to integrate with the federal child care subsidy system.

The feedAustralia program will be available to all early childhood education and care providers at no cost from 1 March 2018.
