This 2019 report outlines the social and economic costs of poor nutrition and the importance of a coordinated and collaborative approach to our nutritional health.

We want a new nutrition policy to:

  • make Australians healthier
  • support the role of dietitians
  • promote healthy nutrition programs
  • reduce the rising cost of diet-related chronic disease
  • inform government and non-government health agencies

This paper summarises the need for a National Nutrition Policy and the recommended steps for action.
