NATIONAL NUTRITION WEEK 2021

It's October and it's time for National Nutrition Week 2021.


During this week, we spread awareness around healthy eating, moderation and moving towards a holistic approach towards life.


According to Australian Dietary Guidelines, aiming for optimum health involves the following steps:

  • Achieve and maintain a healthy weight, be physically active and choose

amounts of nutritious food and drinks to meet your energy needs.


  • Enjoy a wide variety of nutritious foods from these five food groups

every day


  • Limit intake of foods containing saturated fat, added salt, added sugars

and alcohol


  • Encourage, support and promote breastfeeding


  • Care for your food; prepare and store it safely
