Feeding our Families - the Feeding Our Families website - national social marketing campaign for improving nutrition - sets of adverts on TV and in news media and a few magazines - see below
Healthy Food - this is the website of the Healthy Food Guide which is a great magazine that you might have come across in supermarkets - it is only about $4.50 and has a wide readership amongst teenagers apparently because there are always some simple recipes in there. The latest edition has the FOF latest messages in it. Quite a few recipes etc. are available on the website.
Healthy Eating Healthy Action - HEHA website - part of MOH - has newsletters as well as all sorts of other information - I think has links to NHF
Push Play - Sport Wairarapa has just launched this last Friday with a family touch rugby match - 1400 Wairarapa families (through schools) have registered for the Push Play Parent program and we included the latest Feeding our Futures messages in the parent packs that Dayle put together - the first real "combination" of healthy eating & physical activity messages. FOF will promote the national campaign through our local media as well by advertising in the Wairarapa News at intervals throughout the year. We are going to try and combine these adverts with calendars of events and any other articles around food and nutrition
