Australians of all ages generally have a poor diet—that is they do not eat enough of the 5 food groups and eat too many discretionary foods high in salt, fat and sugar. Inadequate fruit and vegetable consumption in particular is a risk factor for CVD, type 2 diabetes, CKD and overweight and obesity. This report provides an overview of Australia’s consumption of fruit, vegetables and other selected nutrients.
3 to 8 serves of discretionary foods were consumed by children per day in 2011–12
Less than 1 in 10 adults met the recommendations for daily vegetable consumption in 2017–18
9.1% of adults consumed sugar sweetened drinks daily in 2017–18
5 to 7 serves of discretionary foods were consumed by adults per day in 2011–12
