Healthy eating, with enough for everyone

Food both sustains us and gives us pleasure. However, when supermarket shelves are overflowing with diverse and tempting produce, it can sometimes be difficult to make wise choices.

Even more worryingly, that seeming abundance also hides a serious problem: food insecurity. Each month, thousands of people around Australia don’t have access to sufficient nutrition for normal growth, development and an active lifestyle.

Using simple language and fun activities, explore healthy nutrition, how we can ensure everyone gets enough food, and how we can make the most of the food sources we have available.
