Healthy Eating

Go for 2 and 5 is a healthy eating campaign that promotes ways to get some extra fruit and vegies in your day.

Eating plenty of fruit and vegies not only contributes to good health, but also protects against a number of diseases and helps maintain a healthy weight.

Most Australians eat only half the amount of fruit and vegies recommended for good health. Adults need to eat at least 2 serves of fruit and 5 serves of vegies each day.

The amount children need depends on their age.
