Tryfor5 is an annual campaign powered by Nutrition Australia encouraging Australians to increase their vegetable consumption to the recommended five serves per day, launching during National Nutrition Week (where awareness is raised around the role of food on our health). Despite the latest studies and recurring healthy eating messages only 4% of Australian’s are eating enough vegetables each day. The average person eats only half as much as they should, which is the inspiration behind Tryfor5.
This year’s Tryfor5 theme is “Small Change, Big Gains” where we’ve transformed some of Australia’s favourite recipes by adding more veg, making them even more healthy and delicious, forming part of an overall healthy, balanced diet. Our biggest-ever competition has been announced, plus tasty tips to enjoy more veg every day, so stay tuned for more info! Thanks to our valued partners and supporters for helping us inspire Australians to discover more ways to add veg to their day!
