Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet abstract

The Australian Dietary Guidelines: providing the scientific evidence for healthier Australian diets summarises the evidence underlying food, diet and health relationships that improve public health outcomes.

These guidelines update the 2003 edition, and build upon their evidence and science base.

The guidelines provide guidance on foods, food groups and dietary patterns that protect against chronic disease and provide the nutrients required for optimal health and wellbeing.

The target audience for the guidelines comprises health professionals (including dietitians, nutritionists, general practitioners, nurses and lactation consultants) educators, government policy makers, the food industry and other interest parties.

The guideline is split into five sections:

  • achieve and maintain a healthy weight
  • enjoy a wide variety of nutritious foods
  • limit intake of foods containing saturated fat, added salt, added sugars and alcohol
  • encourage, support and promote breastfeeding
  • food safety.
