Healthy food lifting the mood of Latrobe young people
Some new characters are appearing in Latrobe City as part of a campaign to encourage healthier eating among young people.
The Fab Food, Marvellous Mood campaign was launched in March by Latrobe City Youth Council to encourage healthy eating as a way to feel better, mentally and physically
Young people are being encouraged to eat a diet rich in whole foods (fruits, vegetables and whole grains) and to eat less sugar, snack foods, take-away foods, high energy foods and highly processed foods.
During the first stage of the campaign we saw colourful bus wrap-ups moving around Latrobe streets. Now with the second stage there are new characters, created by Luka Wild from Enable Design Studio, appearing on Latrobe Valley buses and in social media. Staff at staff at Council’s Early Learning Centres, Preschools, Supported Playgroups and Libraries are also wearing campaign t-shirts.
