What are the 5 food groups anyway?

We know that the key to eating well is to enjoy food from each of the 5 food groups every day - here are the five food groups.

Eatforhealth.gov.au advises:

Foods are grouped together because they provide similar amounts of the key nutrients of that food group.  For example, the key nutrients of the milk, yogurt, cheese and alternatives food group include calcium and protein, while the fruit group is a good source of vitamins, especially vitamin C.

To meet the nutrient requirements essential for good health, you need to eat a variety from each of the five food groups daily, in the recommended amounts.  It is not necessary to eat from each food group at every meal. In fact, in some instances, you only need to eat some of the foods in each food group a couple of times a week.

Eat well, splurge a little occasionally, and enjoy!
