Event Details

During the month of February 2019, Northern Health staff are encouraged to ‘challenge’ themselves to complete each task on the Smart Eating calendar. We have created a “Smart Eating calendar” which offers a small challenge every day. The challenges on the calendar have been developed by Northern Health dietitians using evidence-based research, and include simple activities to incorporate into your day including ‘eat two pieces of fruit today’ or ‘aim for 6-8 glasses of water today (and every day!)’.

Before completing the calendar tasks we encourage staff to complete the Healthy Eating Quiz (http://www.healthyeatingquiz.com.au/).  At the end of the challenge, staff will be encouraged to complete the quiz again to see if they’ve improved their healthy eating score.

We  are inviting staff to send photos of themselves completing any new activities, sharing a nutritious meal together or getting active! We will send updates through our Facebook page, include weekly updates and some tasty recipes to try out from the DAA website.
