Nurses help public to eat healthily.
Nurses are among a range of allied health professionals offering free telephone advice to the public on how to eat healthily.
The NSW Government Get Healthy Service is a free and confidential telephone-based service that provides information and ongoing support to adults in the State who would like to eat more healthily, be more active or achieve and maintain a healthy weight.
People calling the service are given advice by professionals from a number of disciplines including psychologists, dieticians, sports scientists, social workers and nurses. They will be sent information on eating healthily and can choose to take part in a six-month coaching program in which they are allocated a health coach who will assist them to set healthy lifestyle goals, overcome barriers and setbacks, maintain motivation and achieve long-term lifestyle changes.
The service is available Monday to Friday, 8am to 8pm, on 1300 806 258.
