Healthy Fridges

GippSport is actively encouraging people to make water their drink of choice and encouraging sporting clubs to promote water over other beverages, especially sports drinks.

Why sport? Is it our responsibility as a community?

Unhealthy food and drink choices are promoted everywhere e.g. marketing in the media, supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, entertainment centers, hospitals, schools and in sporting clubs. Sporting organisations are in a fantastic position to lead by example and promote healthier lifestyles to their players, volunteers, spectators and communities. Sporting clubs can have a positive impact by promoting healthy drink choices such as water instead of sugar-sweetened drinks like soft drinks, sports drinks, energy drinks and fruit drinks.

What’s in it for us?

Be part of the building momentum across Victorian communities that have already made the change to provide and promote healthy choices. Publicly endorse the connection between healthy drink consumption and active, healthy lifestyles. Attract more participants, spectators and customers by creating a family-friendly environment with healthy options people want.

What Can we do?
