New health hub to boost Aussie wellbeing

29th September 2020 | Eativity editors

Coles is on a mission to get Australians eating and feeling better, teaming up with the Heart Foundation to launch the Coles Health Hub, which will provide information and solutions to help Australians reach their health and wellbeing goals.

A recent YouGov Galaxy Poll found 89 percent of Australians wanted a healthier diet, one-quarter confessed they never or rarely exercised, and on average, people spend nearly four hours on devices outside of their daily work demands.

The Coles Health Hub, developed in partnership with the Heart Foundation, is an online hub that will include regularly updated information relating to exercise, diet, mental health management and social and community support.

It will feature tasty, heart-healthy, exclusive recipes from the Heart Foundation, together with Coles recipes, as well as credible, trusted advice on how Australians can manage their diet, physical activity and mental wellbeing.

With useful tips and information that cover nutrition, exercise, health and wellbeing, customers can learn about the goodness of whole grains for heart health, the difference between good fats and bad fats, ways to start exercising alone or with your family and how to cook healthier family meals at home.

Along with recipes, the hub provides tips on how to eat for heart health.

Coles General Manager of Media and Sponsorship, Kate Bailey, says that Coles is proud to be partnering with the Heart Foundation on the Health Hub.

“We have partnered with the Heart Foundation for this important initiative because of its long-term commitment to the health of Australians, and its expertise around advice and information on nutrition and exercise as the basis for a healthy lifestyle,” she says.

Time to get moving: the hub will offer tips on how to be more active.

Heart Foundation Group CEO, Adjunct Professor John Kelly, has welcomed the launch of the hub as a practical way to help Australians build healthy habits into their busy routines.

“Australians are looking for engaging, yet simple ways to improve their health as part of their everyday lives,” he says. “Through heart-healthy recipes, exercise tips and info, we can help more Australians reduce their risks for heart disease and live well longer.

“Coles is in a unique position to use its scale and everyday customer interactions to drive change, backed by the strength of the Heart Foundation’s knowledge and experience as Australia’s leading experts on nutrition, physical activity and heart health.

“We share a goal to put people’s health and wellbeing at the centre of what we do.”
