As always it is a good idea to shop and cook with Australian seasonal fruits and vegetables as they are so much tastier and have a lot more nutrients packed inside.

Out of season produce may have been grown in artificial environments or sprayed with pesticides. For biosecurity reasons imported produce may be subjected to fumigation.

Eat a rainbow…

Nutrition Australia recommends that we “Eat a Rainbow” which means to eat one vegetable from each of the 5 colour groups that they are categorised in for further details see the Nutrition Australia website.
