Did you know that a fibre-rich diet including 2 serves of fruit and 5 serves of vegetables a day can help prevent 1 in 6 bowel cancer cases? Most people don’t know there is a link between nutrition and cancer. In fact, 1 in 3 cancers can be prevented by eating well, being active and maintaining a healthy body weight.
One of the most important things you can do is to eat the right amount of fruit and vegies. However, we know that 90 percent of adults don’t eat enough vegies, while 50 percent don’t eat enough fruit in NSW.
Enter Cancer Council NSW’s Eat It To Beat It program. We run free sessions and workshops for parents of primary school age children, helping them to understand why fruit and veg are so important.
Our Fruit & Veg Sense workshop runs for 90 minutes, and helps parents with advice on fussy eaters, meal planning, and shopping tips.
Our Healthy Lunch Box session targets parents who have children starting Kindergarten. We emphasise the importance of packing fruit and veg in the lunch box every day, and help with easy ideas to make this possible.
Our program is evidence-based, meaning we don’t rely on fads or trends to get our information – just simple, practical advice that will help the entire family eat more healthily.
We want your whole family eating better – so get in touch today.
