toast and hamburgers using a Star ChoiceTM
registered burger patty and salad. The patrol members are now provided
with a complimentary ham and salad roll with a bottle of water, which
replaced the traditional sausage sizzle and can of soft drink.
The club has very supportive members who not only support the healthy
changes in the canteen but also place requests for new healthy items. The
canteen received requests from their younger members for Green rated icy
poles instead of Red ice creams. The kids buy the fruit based icy poles at
their school canteens, and then started asking for them at the club.
The club reduced the range of Red drinks, now only carrying a few lines
of soft drinks and sports drinks.
Profits increased by 13% from 2007 to 2008. The club were very
happy with the move to offer healthier choices and have continued to provide
the Fremantle surf life saving community with healthier options when they
visit the canteen over summer.
