Making the healthier drink choice the easier one at the Hamilton Indoor Leisure and Aquatic Centre

It’s easier than ever to choose a healthy drink at the Hamilton Indoor Leisure and Aquatic Centre.  In partnership with South West Sport and the GenR8 Change initiative HILAC has made some fantastic changes recently to their selection of drinks at the centre, making it much easier for patrons to make a beverage healthy choice.

What was once a fridge full of sugary drinks is now stocked mostly full of water and other healthy choices, with only Green (best choices) and Amber (to be chosen carefully) options available according to the Victorian Healthy Eating Advisory Service.  Water is also actively promoted through its position at eye level and signage on display around the venue.

The changes were made following community consultation through surveying that consistently indicated HILAC users were interested in and receptive to healthier food and beverage options at the centre.

HILAC are to be congratulated on this change, hopefully the centre is the first of many locations across the Southern Grampians to implement changes that make the healthier choice the easier choice for our community!
