Superhero Foods

The Superhero Foods now have their very own website! Please visit www.superherofoodshq.org.au to access everything Superhero Foods related!

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

Everyday foods that are inexpensive, nutritious and readily available can be "Superhero Foods". The inspiration behind Superhero Foods is we don't need to eat fancy, expensive foods to enjoy good health. A storyline has been developed to enable the dissemination of the Superhero Foods concept. Everyday Foods which live in Healthy Town transform into their Superhero Foods alias to battle the body monsters Decay, Illness and Obesity and Zombie food characters which represent discretionary or extra foods. Thirty six food characters have been developed so far, to represent all five core food groups (i.e., fruit, vegetables, breads and cereals, meat/protein and dairy foods).
