Nude food on the menu tomorrow
FRASER Coast Nutrition Services is encouraging everyone in childcare facilities, schools and workplaces to get involved in National Nude Food Day tomorrow.
Maryborough Hospital community nutritionist Jenny Pham said it was easy to take part in the day which was part of National Nutrition Week.
“We simply encourage everyone including children, students and workmates to bring a healthy lunch with no wrapping into day care, school or work on Wednesday,” she said.
“It's much easier to do than you may think.”
National Nude Food Day was a chance to help reduce rubbish and landfill and could also help save an average of $5 a day by taking your lunch to work instead of buying it.
“It's a great opportunity to improve our general health and to do our little bit to save the planet all in one day,” Ms Pham said.
She said it was also an occasion to empower children about their food choices.
“It's all about what they put into their lunch box and how they pack it to minimise waste,” Ms Pham said.
She said celebrating Nude Food Day with children encouraged healthy eating habits and an understanding of the importance of having a healthy body and lifestyle.
Ms Pham said people could sign up for the Nude Food Movers and Shakers monthly newsletter to receive healthy recipes from Nutrition Australia plus special offers, competitions and tips from www.nudefoodday.com.au/parents/join-nfm-and-s.php.
