National Nutrition Week Breakfast - Hosted by NSW Division

Always Trying For Five - Starting with Breakfast at NSW Government House

The President and Secretary of our National Board attended a breakfast hosted by NSW Division of Nutrition Australia held at NSW Parliament House as part of National Nutrition Week. The event was such a success that people had to be turned away as the venue was at capacity and tickets still being requested the day before which was fantastic to see! The varied health issues we have in Australia which relate to poor diet are something we are passionate about improving.
