National Nutrition Week
From: 14th October 2012
To: 20th October 2012
The food and lifestyle choices we make impact on both our health, and the health of our planet. With childhood obesity rates now around 25% and with Australians identified as being among the highest producers of waste globally, we need to address these issues urgently. Nutrition Australia raises awareness and supports the community to look at these challenges during National Nutrition Week.
Each year the Nutrition Week Kit, is developed to help Australians celebrate National Nutrition Week. The Kit is packed with resources to help you and your family make healthy food and lifestyle choices, and is available for download from the Nutrition Australia website in the weeks leading up to Nutrition Week. Nutrition Week Kits from previous years are available free of charge to Nutrition Australia members.
National Nutrition Week always includes World Food Day, and since 2010 has also incorporated Nude Food Day.
In 2011, Nutrition Australia called on Aussie kids to celebrate Nutrition Week and to learn about healthy eating by entering Australia's Healthiest School Lunch Competition. Entries were received from across the nation, and over $13,000 worth of prizes were given away.
This year National Nutrition Week will be held during the week of 14 - 20 October, 2012. Please check this page in the weeks leading up to Nutrition Week for information about the Nutrition Week Kit, Nutrition Week events and Nude Food Day 2012.
