Description

The CD contained a set of photographs of commonly eaten individual foods and meals, with teaspoons indicating the fat and sugar content of these food and meals.

It was one of the resources developed as part of the Living strong program - a weight management and healthy lifestyle program targeting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in rural remote and urban communities. The program was developed by the Tropical Public Health Unit nutrition teams in Cairns and Townsville as a primary prevention intervention to address the high incidence of diabetes and other lifestyle diseases among North Queensland Indigenous adults.

The resources offered under the program are no longer available, however the Living strong program is still being delivered to some Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
