NUDGE helps push students towards healthy eating

May 3, 2019 at 10:32 am

Spotless is the company which Rockhampton Girls Grammar works with to provide staff and students with delicious food every day.

Recently spotless has collaborated with Nutrition Australia to develop the Nudge guidelines that underpin the selection of healthy meals that they offer.

Nudge is not a set of rules or ridiculous challenges; it is simply about making it easier for the girls at RGGS to nudge towards healthier choices.

During this week the Nudge Initiative team set up a health station at school. They had healthy foods, information and a stationary bike which when used, made smoothies.

Here are some photos of the day:
