Healthy Food and Drink Choices Policy
The Healthy Food and Drink Choices Policy (the Policy) for ACT Health was released in March 2014 by the Director-General Dr Peggy Brown. The Policy will increase opportunities for staff, volunteers and visitors to make healthy food and drink choices.
The Policy details the types of food and drinks to be provided and promoted to ACT Health staff, volunteers and visitors at ACT Health facilities and events, such as meetings, functions, education sessions and fundraising activities.
