Victorian Food Forum makes healthy food and drinks a priority for businesses

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.

Dental health impacts food enjoyment

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. 

Ageing should mean enjoying food more not less

As you get older, lifestyles and appetites change which affects the types and amounts of food we eat. A decreasing appetite or reduced ability to buy and prepare healthy foods can mean that many older people don’t get enough essential vitamins, minerals and fibre, and this can contribute to general unwellness or exacerbate some chronic illness.

Food and nutrition can have a significant impact to quality of life by meeting the physical, functional and experiential needs of clients.
