Healthy Bites

The City of Greater Dandenong is supporting community health and wellbeing with an innovative new healthy dining initiative called “Healthy Bites”.

Only 4% of Greater Dandenong residents eat the recommended five serves of vegetables every day and just 48% of residents eat the recommended two pieces of fruit daily.

 

What is Healthy Bites?

Healthy Bites aims to increase the availability of healthy food by educating food outlets about healthy eating and by increasing the number and visibility of healthy options in local food retailers giving the consumers healthier food options. The program also supports food outlets with expert nutritional advice to make their menus healthier.

Each Healthy Bites option (identified by a ‘Healthy Bites’ sticker, see right)  is low in saturated fat and salt, high in fibre and contains at least one serving of vegetables or fruit.

Healthy Bites criteria

To be recognised as a Healthy Bites food retailer, participating venues must have at least three Healthy Bites approved options and meet venue criteria to promote healthier ingredients and environments. 

For more information or businesses wishing to join the program can phone the Community Wellbeing Department on 8571 1000 or email healthandwellbeing@cgd.vic.gov.au.
