Congratulations to Caitlyn Cormack, our Dietitian, on making sure that visitors to the hospital have more healthy choices to purchase from our vending machines.
There can be a few challenges to meet the Healthy Choices guidelines in rural hospitals. At Cobram District Health, our catering and staff menu meets the Healthy Choices guidelines, but it’s taken almost 12 months of hard work to get our vending machines compliant, due to difficulty of sourcing healthy products in rural areas. After a lot of negotiations we now have one compliant vending machine with one to go! Well done team! Need help with vending? Contact the Health Eating Advisory Service
