Ballarat residents are being encouraged to ‘Eat Smart’ and ‘Shop Smart’ to avoid health risks.
Research has revealed higher rates of overweight and obese adults living in Ballarat when compared to the rest of Victoria. LiveLighter is aiming to change this by highlighting the importance of making sustainable, healthy changes to our diet.
LiveLighter, in collaboration with Ballarat Health Services and Ballarat Community Health Centre, today launched the new LiveLighter resources, to educate Australians about eating well on a budget.
The ‘Eat Smart’ and ‘Shop Smart’ resources provide a go-to guide on how to save money and eat well to avoid unhealthy weight gain and reduce health risks such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and 13 types of cancer.
