Boort District Health (BDH) is making it much easier for staff and visitors to make healthier food and drink choices, by implementing a traffic light system of Red (limit), Amber (choose carefully) and Green (best choices) that forms part of the Victorian Government’s Healthy Choices guidelines. In doing so we have significantly increased our range of healthier food and drink options. The Healthy Choices framework was developed to help make sure that healthy foods and drinks are offered and promoted in places like hospitals, health services and workplaces.
Dr Bruce Bolam, Victoria’s Chief Preventive Health Officer, has applauded the efforts of all those involved at BDH, “As a community focal point for health leadership, hospitals and health services that provide healthier food and drink options triple the benefits: for patients, staff, and the community that visit.”Read More
