Healthy Kids Menu 2017
The 'Healthy Kids Menu' Challenge encouraged participants to explore ways to increase the amount of healthy food choices available for South Australian children in a way that benefits both families and venues. In addressing this challenge, innovators were asked to encourage an environment where the community and industry take on active roles to promote the existing Healthy Kids Menu criteria and offer a compelling case for venues to get on board.
Pitch night winners
Two teams: Feed Studios and Evolve were both awarded $15,000 in funding for their outstanding business proposals.
Feed Studio’s business model incorporated pre-prepared food kits, including customisable menus and promotions for venues. Evolve proposed a solution utilising a healthy menu and recipe database along with an app-based adventure game.
In July 2018, SA Health provided further investment funds to Taste Studios (former Feed Studio) to progress their Eat Active initiative, which focussed on the preparation and distribution of healthy meal kits to venues in South Australia.
