Your in­di­vid­ual in­take will vary de­pend­ing on your age, gen­der, height, weight and phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity level.

We use 8700kJ (2100cal) as an av­er­age daily in­take, as this is the value pre­scribed by the Aus­tralia New Zealand Food Stan­dards Code. You’ll find this on food la­belling.

While th­ese num­bers are one way of track­ing healthy eat­ing, it’s im­por­tant to fo­cus on the qual­ity of the foods we eat. Eat­ing a wide va­ri­ety of healthy, real foods makes it easy to meet all our daily nutri­tion needs, as well as bal­anc­ing en­ergy in­take.

Use th­ese rec­om­mended daily in­takes as a gen­eral guide only. For per­son­alised ad­vice, visit daa.asn.au to find an Ac­cred­ited Prac­tis­ing Di­eti­tian.
