Overview

Healthier Eating and Active Living (HEAL) has been identified as a priority in the G21 region and is the principal focus of the G21 Health and Wellbeing Pillar. HEAL aims to encourage and support the community to make healthy lifestyle changes at a personal level with seven goals:

  • To decrease consumption of sugar sweetened beverages
  • To increase water consumption
  • To increase vegetable consumption
  • To increase healthy food and drink in children’s settings
  • To increase active travel
  • To increase incidental activity
  • To increase physical activity for girls and women aged 12-24

Cross-sector working groups are working in consultation with the community to achieve these goals.

The G21 Health and Wellbeing team are also providing support to “Colac Otway Choose Change”. This Deakin University led project aims to tackle childhood obesity in partnership with Colac Area Health and Colac Otway Shire. For enquiries about this specific project, please contact us.
