Finding healthier food and drinks in Canberra just got easier
What is Healthier Choices Canberra?
Healthier Choices Canberra is about making it easier for Canberrans to find tasty, fresh and healthier food and drink options at the places we go to regularly:
- when we’re eating out
- buying groceries at the local supermarket
- having fun with the kids at entertainment venues around town
- watching or playing junior sports, and
- visiting loved ones in hospital.
Many places already have a range of healthier food and drink choices available. Healthier Choices Canberra will increase the number of healthier options and make it easier for customers to spot them.
When you see our Healthier Choices branding and logo, you can be sure that you are purchasing a healthier choice.
Healthier Choices Canberra is an initiative of the ACT Government.

More Canberrans want healthier choices
In a recent survey, over 60% of Canberrans said they would like healthier choices to be more available when they are out and about.
Eating a variety of healthy foods is essential for good health and helps prevent disease. This is particularly important for children because what they eat now can determine their future health. If kids don’t eat healthily they are at an increased risk of developing serious health conditions as an adult.
So, whether you’re grocery shopping, eating out or enjoying time with the kids, friends and family, we’ve taken out the guesswork in making healthier choices. There’s lots of work happening across Canberra with local businesses to make healthier options stand out using the Healthier Choices Canberra branding.
