Do you eat enough vegetables?


The latest National Health Survey (2014-2015) found that only 7% of Australian adults meet the recommended intake of vegetables each day - are you part of the 93% who could do better?

Vegetables are great sources of fibre, vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients.

How much should I eat? Aim for 5 serves of vegetables a day.

What is a serve of vegetables? 1 serve is around 1/2 cup of cooked veg, or 1 cup of salad veg...try to make sure that half of your lunch and dinner meals are composed of vegetables and you'll be on target!
