Healthy Food and Beverage Policy

Information for DHB contracted providers

To support the implementation of the Ministry of Health requirement for DHB contractors to have a Healthy Food and Drink Policy, nutrition policy experts within the Public Health team have developed a resource pack for contractors. These resources were shared with contractors at workshops held in 2019.

Contractors have until October 2020 to implement their policies, however, we encourage you to do this sooner.

Additional support to prepare your policy or answer any questions is available from the Public Health Unit:
