Mocktails promote good health


Students from the UTAS School of Human Life Sciences have been showcasing foods and beverages that are healthy and delicious at the Newnham campus.

As part of the "Cheers to Good Health Expo" promoting the benefits of good health, the students displayed the art of 'mocktail-making'; creating colourful, delicious non-alcoholic beverages.

Student Sara Carins, who helped prepare the mocktails, said they were easy to make.

"We have mixed and matched with them and experimented a bit," Ms said.

"The mocktails have a bit of fruit, pineapple juice, apricot nectar, sometimes lemonade, and a good handful of ice.

"It's been fun and people seem to like them a lot."

Health promotion lecturer Lesley Harrison said the "Cheers to Good Health Expo" was part of the students' practical elective, allowing them to put their theories on public health into action.
