Eating well helps keep us healthy and happy. There are many reasons why it can be hard to eat well and many ways we can work together to try to make it easier.
We are working with others in our community on projects that will make it easier for children, young people and their families to:
- Eat more vegetables and plant foods
- Drink more water and drink less sugary drinks
- Eat more locally grown and sustainable food
We know that our connection to food and our connection to the environment are strongly linked.
We are supporting our community to eat well in new and creative ways, through the Bellarine Youth Agents of Change Environmental Leadership Initiative (BYAC).
BYAC is a youth-led and whole-of-community approach to healthy eating and climate resilience.
See below for a snapshot of the projects we are piloting as part of the BYAC initiative.
