Healthy Food and Drink Choices

Our Healthy Food and Drink Choices Policy outlines the types of healthy food and drinks available to staff, volunteers and visitors within ACT Health premises. The policy is in line with the ACT Government’s Health Weight Initiative and applies to all ACT health facilities and events such as meetings, functions, education sessions and fundraising activities.

Please see our Healthy Food and Drink Policy Factsheet for more information. 

The following ACT Public Sector (ACTPS) policies have been developed to increase the availability of healthy alternatives across the ACTPS.
