Better Kai

Helping to identify healthier meal options across campus.

About the initiative

The Better Kai initiative is led by a team at the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences. A small team of student dietitians have worked behind the scenes to identify which menu items are great brain and body fuel so you don’t have to!

The stickers, which can be found at the majority of our retailers across campus, indicate which cabinet and menu items are better fuel for your heart and mind.

Items with the label are typically:

  • Lower in saturated fats, processed sugar and salt
  • Contain more fruit, vegetables and/or wholegrain
  • Use more nutritious spreads
  • Use reduced fat cheeses in smaller quantities
  • Controlled portion sizes

Participating retailers:

  • Barilla Dumplings
  • Chi Chop
  • Epsom Café
  • Gong Cha
  • Ha!Poke
  • Hello Chinese
  • Jewel of India
  • Mojo
  • Munchy Mart
  • Needo
  • Shadows
  • Shaky Isles
