The staggering percentage of Australians who aren’t eating enough vegetables
A staggering 93 per cent of Australians aren’t eating enough vegetables.
Dietary guidelines recommend five serves of vegetables per day, but only seven per cent of us meet that recommendation.
Dietitian Karen Inge says it’s “really quite disappointing”.
“I think it’s just getting some inspiration on how to actually achieve it,” she said.
“I think some people just can’t think of ways of eating vegetables.”
For National Nutrition Week this week, Nutrition Australia is running its ‘Try for 5’ campaign to encourage and inspire Australians to eat more vegetables.
