Green Light, Eat Right


Green Light, Eat Right

“The City of Melbourne and Nutrition Australia have been working with participating food outlets in the QV Urban Market to help improve the nutritional quality of their menus and enable consumers to make better food choices.

This initiative has included the introduction of a traffic light colour coded system to help consumers quickly and easily recognise what menu items have maximum, average, or poor nutritional value.

Green Light, Eat Right  is the first pilot program of its kind in Australia, and introduces the traffic light colour coding system into the public food domain. The City of Melbourne’s long-term goal is that program be introduced into every food outlet in the Melbourne CBD, and then into the wider Melbourne community. “*
