By implementing the A Better Choice Strategy, Hospital and Health Services can enhance the wellbeing of over 100,000 Queensland Health staff and provide positive benefits to the multitude of visitors who frequent these facilities each year.
As public institutions known for providing high quality health care, Hospitals and Health Services play an important role in supporting the wellbeing of Queenslanders. Role modelling healthier food and drink options in their food outlets and vending machines sends an important message to the community about healthy living.
A Better Choice supports retail outlets, vending machines, and hospital catering and fundraising suppliers to make healthier food and drinks the default option for staff and visitors. This initiative focuses on providing, promoting, and advertising nutritious options to encourage customers to make positive dietary choices that enhance their overall wellbeing.
