The Healthy Eating Advisory Service (HEAS) supports Victorian organisations to provide and promote healthy foods and drinks, and it is still open for business! HEAS continues to help you work on promoting healthy eating to staff, students, visitors and other people in your organisation through its free information, training, resources and Infoline.
HEAS has also established a coronavirus (COVID-19) information hub, which contains specific and relevant advice about ways to promote healthy eating during coronavirus (COVID-19) for each of the settings. It supports:
- early childhood services
- organisations, including hospitals and health services, sport and recreation centres, universities, and workplaces and food businesses.
Information for early childhood settings and organisations is online now. Information for schools is coming soon. You can subscribe to the mailing list to receive an alert when new content is added.
While most Victorian businesses are operating differently at this time, there are still ways they can support staff and visitors to eat well. Visit the coronavirus (COVID-19) information hub for practical information including:
- continue implementing the Victorian Government’s guidelines for your organisation
- tips to help staff and students eat well at home
- ways to help your on-site staff make nutritious choices
The Healthy Eating Advisory Service is delivered by Nutrition Australia Vic Division with support from the Victorian Government. Visit their coronavirus (COVID-19) information hub now or email or call 1300 22 52 88.
