Healthy Weight Week
Australia’s Healthy Weight Week is an initiative of the Dietitians Association of Australia, raising awareness of the importance of achieving and maintaining a healthy weight and lifestyle.
Eating well is key to feeling your best, both now and in the future. We know healthy eating plays an important role in keeping your body healthy and strong, as well as preventing illness.
Accredited Practising Dietitians (APDs) recommend eating a wide variety of foods each day – that’s Smart Eating.
We recommend you follow the below tips to achieve and maintain a healthy weight:
- Be physically active and choose amounts of nutritious food and drinks to meet your energy needs
- Drink plenty of water and enjoy a wide variety of nutritious foods from the five food groups (vegetables, fruit, grains/cereals, meats/alternative and dairy/alternatives) every day
- Limit intake of foods containing saturated fat, added salt, added sugars and alcohol
- Encourage, support and promote breastfeeding
- Care for your food; prepare and store it safely
