A Better Choice for Sport and Recreation

Sport and recreation clubs and facilities play an important role in promoting physical activity and contributing to a healthier and happier Queensland. Every year, hundreds of thousands of Queenslanders enjoy the best sporting experiences that our great state offers by becoming a member, player, participant or visitor. Food and drinks are a part of enhancing the overall experience of sport and recreation and are essential for fuelling performance and contributing to overall wellbeing.

By introducing A Better Choice, clubs and facilities can encourage healthier eating habits by providing, promoting and advertising healthier food and drink options. This initiative presents an opportunity to foster community wellbeing where physical activity and healthy eating complement each other to create a happier and healthier legacy.

A Better Choice is applicable to all Queensland sport and recreation organised activities and facilities that sell, provide and/or promote food and drinks (including sponsorship). This includes:

  • Community sport and recreation clubs and associations of all codes.
  • Major sports stadiums.
  • Sport and recreation centres, including those run by local councils, state sporting organisations or privately-run.
  • Leisure and aquatic facilities, including those run by local council or privately-run.
  • Organised outdoor recreational activities or events such as motorcycling organised activities, walking or trail running or hiking events.

The A Better Choice Food and Drink Supply Strategy for Queensland Sport and Recreation Facilities supports clubs and facilities to make healthy options easy.

Health and Wellbeing Queensland worked with the sport and recreation sector to co-design the strategy.
