Did you know only 4 per cent of Australians are eating the recommended five servings of vegetables every day. This week 12 -18 October is National Nutrition Week which is aimed at raising awareness of the role of food has on our health.
Conjoint Senior Research Dietitian Jennifer Utter said eating more vegetables is one of the most important dietary changes we can make to improve our health and wellbeing.
“Adequate consumption of vegetables contributes to better immunity, improved gut health, and helps protect you from cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and some cancers,” Jennifer said.
“Growing evidence also suggests that diets high in vegetables promote better emotional wellbeing and protect against cognitive decline. They are so excellent for weight management due to their low calorie content.
