The Australian Dietary Guidelines 2013 (NHMRC)

The Australian Dietary Guidelines 2013 use the best available scientific evidence to provide information on the types and amounts of foods, food groups and dietary patterns that aim to:

* promote health and wellbeing
* reduce the risk of diet-related conditions
* reduce the risk of chronic disease.

The Guidelines are for use by health professionals, policy makers, educators, food manufacturers, food retailers and researchers.

The content of the Australian Dietary Guidelines applies to all healthy Australians, as well as those with common diet-related risk factors such as being overweight. They do not apply to people who need special dietary advice for a medical condition, or to the frail elderly.
