Nutrition Australia’s Try for 5 campaign encourages Australians to increase their vegetable consumption to the recommended five serves per day. This year’s campaign coincides with National Nutrition Week (15-21 October) and the United Nations’ World Food Day on 16 October. National Nutrition Week raises awareness around the role of food on our health, and supports the community to enjoy healthy eating.

This year we are encouraging families to find more ways to enjoy vegetables, and to eat one extra serve of veg every day. At Cardinia Life Café we will be serving up a NEW vegie packed healthy meal each day of Nutrition Week, for you to try. We will be sharing these recipes on our Facebook page, which will be available to purchase in Café from 11am the following day.


Snap a picture of you or a family member enjoying a healthy snack from our Café, check in at Cardinia Life and use the hashtag #Tryfor5 for your chance to win a $50 café voucher.
