Nutrition Australia ACT Inc has released their latest venture Betterbites™.
In light of the ongoing challenge in sourcing healthier food options in the ACT, we have decided to create a selection of our own healthier food options that meet the National Healthy School Canteen Guidelines. We make all of our products in our kitchen in Chifley and deliver directly to sporting clubs, canteens and food outlets in the ACT region.
Designed to become a sustainable business arm of NAACT, Betterbites™ has been created by our team of dietitians with expertise from valued volunteers to help get it up and started. All of our products have been tested in a canteen environment and have been well received amongst adults and children alike. The Betterbites™ website.
Nutrition Australia ACT Inc is also running a Menu Planning Workshop for canteen, managers/staff/volunteers. Details and online bookings can be made via the Nutrition Australia ACT Inc website.
