food guidelines

NATIONAL HEALTH AND MEDICAL RESEARCH COUNCIL

This project aimed to determine the implications of providing a ‘fit-for-purpose definition’ for ‘discretionary foods and drinks’ to the Australian Dietary Guidelines. The outcomes of this project informed the NHMRC on how to improve the clarity of the guidelines. ehc conducted an international scoping review of peer-reviewed and grey literature to examine how other countries, comparable to Australia, differentiate between ‘healthy’ and ‘unhealthy’ foods and drinks for application in nutrition policy actions. This project was led by Professor Amanda Lee from The University of Queensland and ehc worked collaboratively with a group of academics.
