See the lovely cheesy corn fritters recipe to inspire you to introduce more vegetables to your day on day 4 of National Nutrition Week!
Did you know that less than 4% of us eat enough vegetables on any given day?
In fact the average Australian only eats around half their recommended daily intake.
One great way to Try For 5 serves of vegetables a day is to make that sure half your meal contains vegetables. This way you’ll enjoy around 3 serves of vegetables in one meal – that’s already more than the average Australian eats in a day! Try for 5 … with a healthy balanced meal.
