Healthy Food and Beverages at the West Coast DHB – Policy Information

DHBs are responsible for promoting health for the populations they serve. This includes leading by example within their environments to make healthy food and beverage choices easy choices for staff and visitors in DHB settings.

In 2016 the Ministry of Health, other DHBs and public health units around New Zealand worked together to develop a nationally consistent food and drink policy for DHBs. This was published in 2016 and is in place in several DHBs around New Zealand

The West Coast DHB adopted the policy in 2019. We have started working with our hospital cafés to gradually offer more of the good choices that help you feel great, and remove or reduce the portions of foods and drinks higher in fat, sugar and salt.

This policy also applies to fundraising on hospital sites. See link below for alternative fundraising ideas.
