National Nutrition Week October

National Nutrition Week October

Tryfor5 is the theme of National Nutrition Week October 11th to 17th October 2020

To increase awareness about the importance of consuming the recommended serves of vegetables, forming part of an overall healthy, balanced diet.

Did you know that just 7% of Australian adults and 5% of children meet the recommended guidelines for 5 serves of veggies each day?

In fact, the average Australian eats only half as much vegetables as they should! Yet, the largest proportion of food waste in NSW – a whopping 33% – comes from fresh produce. Reducing food waste while enjoying a more sustainable diet packed with vegetables is the basis for better health, reduces the risk of chronic disease and ensures a healthy food supply for future generations.

A number of free on line events are happening during the week . See the link immediately above.
