Health Minister visits Moonee Valley CC for healthy launch
MOONEE VALLEY IN THE NEWS
Launch shows we're in a healthy State
Moonee Valley Cricket Club was in the news on January 29 when the Victorian Government chose to launch its Population Health Survey report at Ormond Park.
Club Vice President Simon Thornton (far left) joined State Health Minister David Davis to front the media and discuss healthy lifestyles.
Minister Davis was then joined by senior players and our Under 12s to share platters of fresh fruit - which is standard fare for the afternoon teas for our senior teams every weekend.
Mr Davis said the Moonee Valley Cricket Club was an excellent model for a healthy and active lifestyle.
"Just 52% of the people surveyed for the current report met the recommended minimum daily intake of two or more serves of fruit," Mr Davis said.
"And less than one in 10 met the target of five or more serves of vegetables each day.
"The Victorian Government is using the Prevention Community Model, which is a joint Federal and Victorian program, to encourage people to take steps to improve their health and wellbeing."
Footage of the launch ran on the Channel 9 and 7 news bulletins on the night of the launch.
