Monash has developed the HealthSmart/EarthSmart Program so you can now make a healthy and environmentally sustainable choice when you order catering or buy food from outlets on campus.
The HealthSmart logo on a menu means the item is a healthier food choice, and;
- has no added fat, salt and sugar
- mainly consists of healthier food options (fruits, vegetables, wholegrain
cereals, lean meat or fish, fat-free or low fat dairy products).
The EarthSmart logo on a menu means the item is an environmentally sustainable food choice, as well as being good for you. It will be HealthSmart, not include bottled water, and be one of the following:
- vegan or vegetarian
- sustainably caught fish by being Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified
- made from certified organic, biodynamic or free-range ingredients
- use local, seasonal ingredients.
EarthSmart items should be provided on reusable crockery and tableware to reduce waste.
Promoting HealthSmart, EarthSmart
If you order at least one HealthSmart or EarthSmart item for your next event, you can use the logo on your invitations. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the logo.
