Creating a generational shift.
Projected obesity rates indicate that children born in 2023 may have a reduction in life expectancy. Applying a collective, equity-informed approach, a generational shift can be achieved to better the health and wellbeing of all Queenslanders, particularly children and young people.

Improving the accessibility, affordability and taste of healthy food and drinks.
Modern food environments can promote unhealthy dietary patterns, with excessive marketing and an abundant supply of energy-dense and nutrient poor food and drinks. To shift this parallel, it is essential to understanding the values, attitudes, knowledge, and behaviours of consumers when eating out of home.
