Eat Well. Feel Good.
It can be hard to find healthier food and drinks when you’re out. Sometimes it seems like we’re bombarded with unhealthy choices. Healthier Choices Canberra is changing that.
There’s plenty of businesses that already have fresh, tasty, healthier foods. We’re working with them to make it easy to find the healthier choices.
Meet our Local Heroes
Where can I find a local hero?
We’ve teamed up with Canberra Business Chamber, Nutrition Australia ACT and The Healthy Eating Hub to help businesses promote their delicious, nutritious food and drinks.
Some places have improved their recipes and others have added brand new healthier options - it’s all about choice so there’s still plenty of old favourites on the menu too.
There are lots of local supermarkets working hard to help you find the healthier choices when you’re shopping. In store you’ll see tips and tricks on healthier choices in the supermarket aisles, like the ones below.

More and more cafes, clubs and restaurants are selling delicious healthier options. It goes way beyond smashed avo on sour dough bread (although that’s delicious too). There are scrumptious salads, superfood smoothies and fresh mix and match breakfast bowls in plenty of venues across the city.
Look out for the Healthier Choices Canberra sticker in the window. It’s a tell-tale sign that you’ll find some yummy healthier options inside.
Some places have put a symbol on their menu to show which food and drinks are healthier.

Look for the Refill Canberra sticker too. This means you can refill your water bottle for free. You won’t be expected to buy anything either. Don’t forget, tap water helps to quench your thirst, stay hydrated and reduce single use plastic.
Play centres are fantastic to burn kids’ boundless energy. But we know you’re concerned about the food options at some of the entertainment venues around town. After all, who wants a party full of moody kids because they’ve crashed after eating too much junk?
Some of the entertainment places have started to sell healthier choices. They’re also changing some of the food items at kids’ parties too. No one wants to be a party pooper but lots of parents want more balance and less sugar and fat. Healthier options can be tasty and exciting too.
