fuelled4life

DESCRIPTION: What is the FBCS?
Encouraging healthy food choices early in life can help create lifelong preferences for healthy foods. The Food and Beverage Classification System (FBCS) is a practical tool that can be used to identify healthy food and drink options.

The FBCS was developed by the Ministry of Health specifically for foods and beverages children commonly consume in an education setting. Foods and beverages are classified according to their nutrient profile and the system identifies the healthier options. Foods and beverages are divided into two levels for registration; everyday and sometimes.

Everyday Foods - Everyday foods and drinks are the healthiest choices. Encourage and promote these foods and drinks.


Sometimes foods - Sometimes foods and drink should be eaten in moderation. These foods and drinks should not dominate the choices available.


What is fuelled4life?
Based on the FBCS, fuelled4life is a collaborative initiative that involves the education, health and food industry sectors working together to make it easier to have healthier food in schools and early childhood education (ECE) services.

The Heart Foundation has updated, simplified and made the system more user-friendly. It aims to help ECE services and schools to provide cost effective, nutritious options that give children and young people more variety and choice.

How it works
Food companies register products with fuelled4life as everyday or sometimes and these products are identified in a Buyers’ Guide. The guides are available as printed books and on www.fuelled4life.org.nz. The website also provides useful information, recipes and tips. Schools and ECE services that sign up to fuelled4life receive the free printed Buyers’ Guide each year and regular e-newsletters.

How can schools and ECE services get involved?
Schools and ECE services can sign-up to fuelled4life online at www.fuelled4life.org.nz and get the benefit of a simplified streamlined system.

How can food companies get involved?
There are a number of marketing advantages available to food companies who register with fuelled4life. Contact Larissa Beeby for more information.

Fuelled4life is an easy way to implement the Food and Beverage Classification System and helps schools and ECE services to identify and offer healthy food choices to children.

Liggins Institute

DESCRIPTION: The Liggins Institute was the University of Auckland’s first Large Scale Research Institute. It is a world leading centre for translational research on fetal and child health; the impact of nutrition on health throughout life; epigenetic regulation of growth and development; breast cancer; and evolutionary medicine. Our aim is to rapidly translate discoveries in basic science into therapies and strategies that will prevent or help people manage major health problems of the 21st century. We have shown that many common diseases of middle and old age have their origins very early in life – often before conception. Our work has led to a treatment for neonatal brain damage, a link between preterm birth and risk of developing diabetes, new treatment strategies for breast cancer and the recognition of clear links between early life nutrition and later life disease. Our postgraduate training programmes are based on multi-disciplinary approaches supervised by investigators who have international reputations in a wide range of fields. We are committed to promoting awareness and understanding of science through public events and the LENScience network of programmes for schools.
