National Nutrition Week is Nutrition Australia’s annual healthy eating awareness campaign. Australian Health Survey data has found less than 4 per cent of us eat the recommended daily serves of vegetables each day(1). Children under 18 are also less likely to meet their daily vegetable intake recommendations.
Veggies are full of nutrients and are relatively low in calories. A diet high in vegetables has been associated with a reduced risk of coronary heart disease and stroke(2). There is also research that suggests eating vegetables is associated with a reduced risk of weight gain and reduced risk of certain cancers, including prostate, colorectal and lung(2). Did you know legumes and lentils are also considered a serve of vegetables? This is because they contain similar nutrients, but have the added benefit of proving protein.
A serve of vegetables can be measuring using standard metric cups or by weight(3). This National Nutrition Week, aim for 5 serves of veggies each day.
