Thumbs Up! Good tucker – Long life
Nutrition education and creative environment for children
The Thumbs Up! Schools Program is aimed at Indigenous children aged 5-16. A creative environment using music and new media workshops in schools and community concerts is employed to promote healthy eating education and information in partnership with local stores and local health services.
The aim is to encourage young Indigenous Australians to make better and healthier food choices particularly in regard to the drinking of adequate amounts of water daily instead of sweet sugar-laden drinks and also to promote the eating more fruit and vegetables as snacks rather than choosing “junk” foods.
