It's your move! is a community-based obesity prevention project that promotes healthy eating patterns, regular physical activity and healthy bodies amongst youth. The project is being conducted in five East Geelong and Bellarine Secondary Schools including Bellarine Secondary College, Catholic Regional College, Christian College Bellarine, Geelong High School and Newcomb Secondary College.
The project encourages teenagers to take ownership, control and suggest the best ways forward to address healthy eating, healthy bodies and physical activity. The students attending these schools have been instrumental in running the project. They named the project, designed the logo and developed the action plan that reflects their concerns - such as limited access to healthy foods and more physical activity opportunities.
The students are working in partnership on a variety of levels with government and the local community to explore and create new opportunities to make healthier choices easier choices.
Students will track their eating and physical activity habits around the clock for the project, part of the Victorian Government's 'Go for your life' strategy.
The whole-of-community project aims to:
