What are Superhero Foods?

October 5, 2015

Secretly disguised as Everyday Foods, Superhero Foods have super powers that protect us from their arch villains Decay, Illness and Obesity. The Superhero Foods energise, protect and build healthy bodies. However, trying to destroy our healthy way of life are the tempting Zombie Foods. The Zombie Foods are high in fat, sugar and salt we want to avoid these foods so we don’t look and feel like a Zombie.

Developed by Foodbank WA as a nutrition education resource for primary school aged children, the Superhero Foods characters aim to empower children to make healthy lifestyle choices. Superhero Foods provide a fresh approach to teaching nutrition and cooking using key messages and themes linked to the current guidelines promoted in the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating.
