Healthier Eating Program 

At BNH we recognise that Healthy Eating can be a big change for many of us - that's why we've developed a new program that's all about making better choices - rather than cutting out butter all together, why not start by introducing a healthier alternative - after all, the small changes we make now will have an impact on our health (and one change can lead to another and another and another!!).

This project has received funding from City of Greater Bendigo
