Spotless ‘Nudges’ school students to better health choices

Spotless is proud to announce the launch of a new initiative to improve the health and wellbeing of school students across Victoria.
The Nudge program aims to encourage students to make good lifestyle choices when it comes to food and exercise.
Developed in collaboration with Nutrition Australia, Nudge incorporates nutritious menus and recipes created by dietitians and experts to reflect the needs of growing minds.
It uses food that enhances energy and focus levels, mood and the ability to learn. The program also has a full suite of physical and emotional wellbeing seminars.
“We know healthy students are better learners,” said Judith Blinkhorn, Spotless’ General Manager Food Services and Education, Business & Industry. “We also know how busy life can be, and that it can be hard to make the best choices regarding health and wellbeing. That is why we are really excited about how Nudge can fuel learning throughout schools and promote healthy eating.
“Nudge is designed to be a fun experience. It includes creative initiatives that promote physical activity and mental wellbeing, such as games, apps, challenges and educational lessons.”
Every day, Spotless prepares nutritious food for more than 100,000 primary, secondary and tertiary students across Australia and New Zealand.
“The great thing about the Nudge program is that we can adapt it to suit the requirements of different schools,” Judith said. “It really is about putting people first.”
The company looks forward to introducing Nudge to more schools across Australia and New Zealand, before expanding to the corporate and resources sectors.
The Alliance team is introducing the Nudge Health and Lifestyle program to school students across Victoria.
