National Nutrition Week

National Nutrition Week 2017 is 15-21 October 2017 #NNW2017

With beginnings more than 20 years ago, National Nutrition Week is Nutrition Australia’s annual healthy eating awareness campaign.

The theme for National Nutrition Week 2017 is Try For 5 - an annual campaign developed by Nutrition Australia that aims to encourage Australians to increase their vegetable consumption to the recommended five serves per day.

This year's campaign is being launched during National Nutrition Week (15-21 October) which coincides with the United Nations’ World Food Day on 16 October.

Each year National Nutrition Week raises awareness around the role of food on our health, and supports the community to enjoy healthy eating. This year we are encouraging families to find more ways to enjoy vegetables, and to eat one extra serve of veg every day.

Thanks to our principle partner Bayer Australia and our other partners and supporters for working with us to encourage Australians to discover more ways to add veg to their day!
 


 

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.

National Nutrition Week always coincides with the United Nations’ World Food Day, which takes place on 16 October.

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.
