Where can you find healthy food options?

You can participate in the Foodback project that is coming to Nelson this winter. The aim of the project, Foodback: your feedback for healthier food places, is to increase public awareness of, and action for, healthier food places in New Zealand communities. During the initial phase of the project we will be working with five communities, including Nelson, to develop and test an app that local people can use to collect information on food advertising, food placement, and food quality in and around key places within the community (e.g. local schools, ECEs, supermarkets, hospitals, takeaways, fast food outlets, and sport clubs). All of the information that is gathered will be analysed and fed back to participants and local ‘change agents’ (i.e. individuals with the ability effect positive change in community food places).
