Website updating important

While much time and thought has been put into the new design, the new Healthy Eating Pyramid is essentially a new twist on a consistent theme: The new Pyramid maintains the original messages above, while providing more definition about how much each food group contributes to a daily diet.

We also updated the variety of foods that are available within each food group, to reflect current dietary behaviours and encourage variety.

It depicts whole foods and minimally-processed foods in the five core food groups, plus healthy fats, as the foundation of a balanced diet that’s based on the Australian Dietary Guidelines (2013).

It also encourages drinking water, enjoying herbs and spices, and limiting salt and added sugar.

The new Healthy Eating Pyramid portrays a very positive message about the types and proportions of food we should aim to eat each day, as the foundation of a healthy and balanced diet. In 2015, Nutrition Australia launched the new Pyramid with a fresh look and targeted health messages.The 2015 Healthy Eating Pyramid depicts the types and proportions of foods the average Australian should consume in one day for good health.So we separated each layer into the specific foods groups, to provide that greater level of detail, while still retaining the original Pyramid structure.To do this, the ‘Eat more’ layer was split into three main food groups: vegetables & legumes, fruit and grains. For many years the top ‘Eat in small amounts’ layer of the Pyramid encouraged us to limit the total amount of added fats and sugar we consume.
