Welcome

Healthy Food Guide (Australia) - - WELCOME -

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
