Our dietary patterns are made up of foods and drinks - not simply nutrients. It's the combination of the types and amounts of the foods and drinks that we consume regularly that really matters for our health.

By eating the recommended amounts from the five food groups, you will get enough of the nutrients essential for health and wellbeing, including a reduced risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity and some cancers. You may also feel better, look better, enjoy life more and live longer!
