So far the program has seen the introduction of smoke-free campuses
and healthy food and drink options in canteens. Buoyed on by these
successful reforms, the program has now been extended for at least
another two years.
"South western Sydney is a diverse and vibrant community and
many of our students are from cultural backgrounds that have
identified risks of lifestyle diseases," said SWSi's Associate
Institute Director Debra Jolley. "Some students forget to eat
lunch or only ever eat junk food because it's quick and easy to eat
while studying. We are actively changing this mindset in order to
create a culture of healthier students."
As well as healthy eating and drinking habits, the program also
educates students on the importance of getting enough sleep so that
their brains and bodies can function at optimum levels.
