Answered on

SPORT CLUB CANTEENS — FUNDING — HEALTHY OPTIONS

1118. Hon Dr STEVE THOMAS to the minister representing the Minister for Health:

I refer to the media statement released by the Minister for Health yesterday titled ''Funding helps increase healthy options at WA sport clubs'', which includes several references to increasing healthy food and drink options.

(1) What defines healthy food and drink options at sporting clubs, and will the minister table a list outlining these products?

(2) What defines unhealthy food and drink options at sporting clubs, and will the minister table a list outlining these products?

(3) Will unhealthy products still be allowed to be sold at sports clubs that are recipients of this funding?

(4) Are there any products that sporting clubs must stop selling in order to receive this funding grant?

Hon STEPHEN DAWSON replied:

I thank the honourable Leader of the Opposition for some notice of the question.

(1) Healthy food and drink options are defined in accordance with the WA School Canteen Association's Fuel to Go & Play traffic light system for rating foods as green and/or amber, based on their nutritional value. No product list is available. Products are defined through the individual assessment of each club canteen menu.

(2) Unhealthy food and drink options are defined in accordance with the WA School Canteen Association's Fuel to Go & Play traffic light system to rate foods as red, based on their nutritional value. No product list is available. Products are defined through the individual assessment of each club canteen menu.

(3) Yes.

(4) No.
