The Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation is delighted to be leading the Healthy Kids Advisors initiative on behalf of the Victorian Government.

The Foundation has over 20 years of experience delivering the Kitchen Garden Program and co-creating food education experiences that foster long-term engagement and sustainable change in school settings. We are excited to see a similar approach used outside of the school gate to benefit the whole community.

“I’m excited to collaborate with the Southern Grampians community to make fresh, seasonal and delicious food available for our families and young people in their schools and sports clubs.”

Monique Sobey – Healthy Kids Advisor, Southern Grampians

Priority communities

Healthy Kids Advisors lean on the Foundation’s pleasurable food education philosophy to support each community’s unique healthy eating goals and encourage participation in the state-wide Vic Kids Eat Well movement.

Healthy Kids Advisors will connect schools and organisations to existing community resources, local opportunities and offer free, tailored guidance on reaching their unique healthy food and drink goals.

Along the way, they will guide these organisations through the Vic Kids Eat Well movement, providing hands-on support to take simple, achievable steps and healthy swaps that make a big impact. Vic Kids Eat Well is supported by the Victorian Government and delivered by Cancer Council Victoria’s Achievement Program, and Nutrition Australia’s Healthy Eating Advisory Service.
