The Heart Foundation Tick has been helping Australians make healthier food choices for over 20 years. As a trusted, independent not-for profit program, Tick continuously works with food companies to improve the nutrition of the foods we eat most often.
Tick’s nutrition standards are tough and stringent so food companies work hard to earn the Tick. And once the Tick is on pack, foods are regularly random tested to ensure they continue to meet our strict nutrition standards.
By looking out for the Tick, shoppers can easily choose healthier products at a glance. They’re healthier because Tick foods are lower in saturated fat, sodium (salt), and kilojoules (energy) but they also contain plenty of the good stuff like fibre, calcium, wholegrains and vegetables.
With more than 1,700 products now approved to use the Tick, you are bound to find a healthier alternative to the foods you usually buy.
