'Understanding the community is vital and it’s not until you have acknowledged the wide variety of complex issues faced by our whānau that you can move into looking at kai...' says Nicki Mathieson.

Promoting Physical Activity at the Local Government Level

This snapshot aims to equip those wishing to engage with local government with the rationale, evidence and tools for promoting physical activity.

There are three case studies of successful engagement with local government to improve physical activity outcomes and this will be useful background to read if you are providing input into the long-term plans of your own local councils.

Public Health Expert Blog

Read "And now the Brits are doing it: A sugary drink tax levy on the industry" - a blog from Prof Tony Blakely, Prof Nick Wilson, Dr Anja Mizdrak, and Dr Cristina Cleghorn.

Nourishing Futures With Better Kai

The ANA website is a hub for many useful resources.

One of the popular resources is produced for parents of toddlers and young children by Community and Public Health West Coast.

This booklet is designed to help parents with nutrition for their small children; to set them up for healthy habits throughout their life. It features recipes, lunchbox tips and so much more.

Nutrition and Public Health Promoter Jade Winter presented on this resource at the ANA Christchurch Forum.

Golden Foot Walking Awards 2018 are now open

The Golden Foot Walking Awards celebrate and recognise New Zealand achievements for walkers by acknowledging innovative new facilities, highlighting national best practise and rewarding ongoing commitment to walking. 

The awards are open to all - private companies and public organisations, not-for-profit groups, and community organisations or individuals.

Allergy Tests

Consumer Magazine has published an article on allergy tests - as part of the ‘Choosing Wisely’ campaign.

Working in public health at grassroots means you might need to have a broad range of knowledge to be able to answer public questions from an evidence base. This article will be useful to refer to if you get asked about alternative allergy tests.
