Eat Well Queensland 2002-2012: Smart Eating for a Healthier State


Logo of Eat Well QueenslandA healthy diet is essential for good health and wellbeing, and the normal growth and development of children. Good nutrition protects against a wide range of diseases, with around 16% of the burden of disease caused by an unhealthy diet and lack of physical activity.

Queensland's first statewide nutrition strategy is called Eat Well Queensland 2002-2012: Smart Eating for a Healthier State.  This strategy aims to improve the health and wellbeing of all Queenslanders, including Indigenous Queenslanders and other vulnerable groups, through better food and nutrition. Eat Well Queensland adopts a broad population-based approach that has already achieved significant success.
