National Nutrition Week
Beginnings more than 20 years ago, National Nutrition Week is Nutrition Australia’s annual healthy eating awareness campaign.
Each year National Nutrition Week raises awareness of the role of food on our health, and supports the community to enjoy healthy eating.
The food and lifestyle choices we make impact on both our health, and the health of our planet. With childhood obesity rates now around 25% and with Australians identified as being among the highest producers of waste globally, we need to address these issues urgently.
National Nutrition Week always coincides with the United Nations’ World Food Day, which takes place on 16 October.
The theme for National Nutrition Week 2017 is Try for 5, encouraging Australians to increase their vegetable consumption to the recommended five serves per day.
