Acouple of weeks ago, I was flicking through some cookbooks and relishing the thought of my lazy weekend ahead. I’d been waiting for just such a chance to do some leisurely baking, but when I scanned the recipes, my enthusiasm dissolved into disappointment. The meals looked so delicious, but many of them used vegetables only as token decorations.
As this month’s cover story explains on p32, eating a bounty of colourful vegetables is a recipe for a long, healthy life. That’s why every Healthy Food Guide meal provides at least two of your five daily vegie serves. But how much is a serve? Is it a cup, a handful or whatever lands on your plate? That’s where our free poster comes in handy.
To help you eat well, we’re giving you a guide to portion sizes that lets you check your serves at a glance. It illustrates healthy serves of fruit and veg, along with other essential foods, and even sizes up treat foods so you can have your cake and avoid weight gain, too!
Pin your new poster up in the pantry to help your whole family boost their health!
Enjoy this month, Andrea Duvall, Editor
