New netball partnership to deliver nutrition education

Healthway, Netball WA and West Coast Fever will work together on a new state-wide strategy aimed at encouraging physical activity and creating healthy eating habits for all Western Australians.

Through the partnership, Netball WA will create a healthier game day environment for around 45,000 of its members and around 220,000 participants state-wide.

Community netball venues will work with Healthway and the WA School Canteen Association to provide access to healthier food and drink choices like vegetables, fruit and water.

Encouraging families to eat more fruit and vegetables can improve their health and reduce long-term disease risk.

Creating healthier environments which provide healthy food and drink choices are vital for reducing the high prevalence of overweight and obesity among the Western Australian community.

Through their state-wide community program, Fever players will provide education and inspire good nutrition and physical activity. LiveLighter will be integrated across the Fever brand.

Healthy foods and drink in sport should be the norm and the partnership between Healthway, Netball WA and West Coast Fever will lead the way for creating healthier environments to play sport in WA.
