What is Fizz Free Whānau anyway?

On the surface, Fizz Free Whānau is a challenge to go without sugary drinks for the month of February. However, more than just a challenge, FFW takes a whānau-centred approach to awhi (care for) challenge-takers, and those struggling with nutrition, by providing ongoing support and education throughout the month.

On a larger scale, we believe that we can change the narrative around Māori health.

We know that our tūpuna were strong, fit, and healthy.

Together, we can set trend for our mokopuna by building healthier habits.

We know that programmes that support Māori are good for everyone too- so we are pleased to support our Pasifika, migrant and other communities to also be well!
