Healthy Eating Guidelines
Healthy Clubs aims to create a supportive environment in which it promotes healthy eating for all its members and the wider community, to make the Association a healthier place for everyone to enjoy. For young people to achieve their full potential, it is essential that they eat healthily. As well, healthy eating provides the building blocks for lifelong health and well-being.
Any club can adopt guidelines once they agree to implement and embed messages of Healthy Eating in their club. The guidelines should describe the types and amounts of foods people need for a healthy balanced diet. But it is important to note that these are general guides and can be adapted by clubs/ teams to meet their needs. Everyone has different food needs depending on body size, age, gender, underlying medical conditions and activity level.
Following guidelines and being active gives people the best chance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
