On 21 February, Nutrition Australia Vic Division joined hundreds of attendees from all over Victoria for the Department of Health and Human Service’s inaugural Food Forum.
The event brought together representatives from organisations in various sectors, such as health, sport and recreation, local government, food manufacturing and distribution, and more to inspire large organisations to play their part in creating a healthier population through healthy foods and drinks.
We all know that to have good dental health, we need to look after our teeth. Yet, preventable dental diseases such as tooth decay and dental erosion are very common health problems in Australia. Regular tooth brushing and flossing (at least twice a day), as well as regular visits to the dentist are only just the start. Good nutrition and eating habits also play a key role in preventing tooth decay and dental erosion.
