Establishing healthy eating patterns as a child is essential to forming good dietary habits that help prevent negative health outcomes during childhood and later in life.

Results from consecutive Australian Health Surveys show children are not consuming enough vegetables. In fact, only 4.6% of children aged 2-17 years of age eat the recommended amount.

VegKIT aims to increase the vegetable intake of Australian children with a community-minded approach.

This website contains a collection of free, evidence based and expertly developed practical tools, resources and interventions to support children, educators, health care professionals, government, research institutes and industry. Resources include setting specific best practice guidelines, relevant supporting tools and materials, and an online registry of evidence-based initiatives.
