The Go for 2&5 campaign just continues to build momentum and a supportacross the country. It is further testament to the depth of this campaign."The first stage of the campaign has already been launched via a new televisioncommercial, outdoor and support media across the state of Queensland.Queensland Health Principal Public Health Nutritionist Dr Amanda Lee said thatpromoting healthy eating is a priority for Queensland Health, to help improve thehealth of all Queenslanders."Research shows that Queensland adults only eat around half the recommended dailyserves of fruit and vegetables," Dr Lee said."The campaign objective is to increase consumption by one serve per person per day,which would help reduce the risks of obesity, poor nutrition and chronic diseasethroughout the state, and have a significant impact on related health costs,""We are confident that 303's experience in developing the original campaign in WA,and for the national market, will assist us in achieving our campaign objectives."The news comes on the back of a string of successes for 303 and the Go for 2&5Campaign.
