Eat, Great & Participate

Eat Great & Participate is all about promoting healthy eating to kids participating in recreation, sport and community activities and events. To develop life long healthy habits, it is important for kids to receive consistent messages around the importance of healthy eating and being active every day.

Building from the great work of the School Food Guidelines we are working with recreation directors, community leaders, coaches, parents, volunteers, food service providers, town councils, facility operators to increase healthy food and beverage choices in recreation and community facilities and at events.

The Eat Great and Participate project is a joint partnership between the Department of Tourism, Culture and Recreation (TCR) and the Department of Health and Community Services. It is funded by TCR and the Public Health Agency of Canada. Partners include Recreation NL, Sports NL, School Sports NL, Regional Health Authorities/ Regional Wellness Coalitions, the Community Youth Network and Dietitians of NL.
