The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander guide to healthy eating provides information for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people on the amount and kind of foods that people should be eating for better health and wellbeing.

The guide uses a pictorial food chart to show the different food groups, and to outline how much of a certain food group to eat for a healthy diet. The guide also provides information on eating less sugar, less salt, and less saturated fat.

Ideas for healthy snacks are shown at the bottom of the guide, which also promotes the importance of drinking plenty of water.

The guide was adapted from the wider population Australian dietary guidelines.

The guide can be accessed online, or hard copies can be ordered via the contact details below.
