NL Sports Centre
The Newfoundland and Labrador Sport Centre recognizes that health and wellness are important priorities of the province. As a provincial training facility, as well as a facility utilized by the community, we have an opportunity to create an environment that promotes and supports healthy active living:
We will do our best to:
Support an environment that is welcoming to breastfeeding families.
Maintain vending options to include healthier choices identified in Canada’s Food Guide.
Ensure consistent advertising/messaging that aligns with health and wellness (e.g. eliminate the promotion of sugar-sweetened beverages).
Encourage community groups and organizations to have food and beverage options from Canada’s Food Guide available during events.
Promote nutrition month and other healthy eating initiatives.
Partner and promote local community-based healthy eating initiatives and supports such as Eat Great and Participate.
Choose green options when possible.
Choose local options when possible.
Ensure staff are aware and understand this policy.
