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.

Parents turn eco-friendly | The Courier-Mail

PLASTIC wrap and disposable containers might soon be history in schools, as principals reject non-recyclables and parents turn to more eco-friendly alternatives to pack their children’s lunches.

In a growing trend, several schools have taken a stance against non-reusable wraps and require certain meals be served “nude”.

Most Catholic schools have an early morning healthy food break, often called Munch’n’Crunch or Fruit Break, where packaging and processed food is banned.

Nutrition Australia recommends parents seek lunchboxes that will keep foods separate (to avoid cross-contamination) and maintain a constant, cool temperature. They must be easy to clean to avoid a build-up of bacteria.

Haggusandstookles.com.au online retailer Donna Fingland said her research found most families replaced lunchboxes at least once a year. “Lunchboxes have to be able to stand up to kids’ wear and tear,” Ms Fingland said.

“The ability to keep food cool is important, and it has to be large enough without being too bulky. They have to be able to slide easily into a school bag, and for little fingers to open and close them.”
