Nutrition website launched for indigenous kids

The Jimmy Little Foundation has launched a new interactive website, Thumbs Up! to promote healthy eating to indigenous children in the Northern Territory. The website aims to encourage indigenous children to make healthy food choices and improve nutrition. The website includes a teacher section outlining lesson plans, interactive activities and a variety of resources.

Jimmy Little Foundation chief executive Graham "Buzz" Bidstrup said the website would provide vital health and wellbeing information for schoolchildren in their early formative years. The Thumbs Up! website is part of a broader Jimmy Little Foundation healthy eating program funded by Medicines Australia.
