recreational, aquatic and leisure facilities and now also a healthy café
“We felt we had a responsibility to the community to offer healthy food
at our café” said Café owner and manager, Bob Griffiths.
“We have largely based our menu on the traffic light system. Through some
small and easy changes we have made big improvements to the nutritional
value of the foods and drinks we offer”
“We have a lot of children buying a snack after their swimming lessons,
but we are now also seeing a lot of the mums and dads purchasing healthier
options for themselves.”
“My thoughts were that the healthy eating choices would replace the
conventional choices over a period of time with little or no impact on
revenue. What we are seeing is people who eat only healthy (food) buying
more product from us and the gradual change we expected is taking place.
Thus our number of customers has increased”.
“We are not seeing any downside by making the move to healthy eating and
will continue to introduce Star ChoiceTM
registered products”, said Mr Griffiths.
The Centre offers an extensive range of healthy food and drink choices
available, and these are listed below.
