Purpose of Try For 5
Try For 5 aims to inspire Australians to enjoy vegetables through highlighting the fun and creative ways Australians can incorporate veg into their day. With only 7% of adults and 5% of children eat the recommended serves of vegetables each day, Nutrition Australia created the campaign to raise awareness of the benefits of eating vegetables.
Vegetables are important for health. They contain a range of nutrients including fibre, carbohydrates, protein, vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals. Eating the recommended serves of vegetables each day has been to help maintain a healthy weight, lower cholesterol and blood pressure, and lower the risk of developing certain chronic diseases such as Type 2 Diabetes and heart disease.
