About National Nutrition Week 2015

National Nutrition Week 2015 was all about getting all Australians to enjoy more fruit and vegetables every day with Pick Right. Feel Bright!

Whether they're fresh, frozen or canned, eating more fruit and vegetables is one of the easiest things we can all do for better health and wellbeing.

Fruits and vegetables burst with flavour and they're packed full of important vitamins and minerals, disease-fighting antioxidants and gut-healthy fibre.

And they're so versatile. They can be eaten raw, cooked, poached, baked, mashed, grated, chopped, diced, sliced - you name it!

to help you buy, grow, cook and enjoy fruit and vegetables.

About National Nutrition Week

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 includes World Food Day (16 October).

National Nutrition Week 2016 will be 16-22 October 2016.
