FOODS THAT DO GOOD: NUTRITION CALCULATOR

Australians consume too much discretionary food and not enough foods from the five food groups for a healthy diet. Foods That Do Good was established to help address this issue by providing health professionals with easy-to-access, holistic and evidence-based nutrition information that will help Australians understand how to work towards better health through a balanced diet.

Download factsheets for every age and gender showing exactly how many recommended serves of good foods your patients need to reduce diet-related health risks through healthy diets.

The site is curated by Dairy Australia with input from qualified health professionals and the various peak bodies representing the other four food groups. Link to Website.
