ISSUE 30 I Oct 2018

I don't know about you, but I love the smell of Spring! You'll notice we've renovated our newsletter just in time too. Maybe you're thinking about Spring-cleaning your lifestyle? Getting out and being more active or paying more attention to the foods you eat? If so, then this issue is for you.
Our latest  Hot Topic by Simone Austin, Advanced Sports Dietitian, looks at how carbohydrates can fuel sports performance. So whether you're looking to fuel for an upcoming race or just a run round the park, there's something for you! 
We've shared our  Whole Grain Serve Size Guide  to help you meet the 48g daily target. Most of us know the importance of including whole grains in a balanced diet, but only about 30% of us reach that goal - simply making a few swaps can help you get there! Like swapping white rice for brown, chips for popcorn and choosing whole grain breads. 
The results of our  latest audit  are in too, where we looked at the huge range of plant-based milks on the market. Whether you call them milks or 'mylks,' our factsheet tells you all you need to know about this growing category. 
Plus we're hoping you can help us with our breakfast research - simply complete our quick survey  telling us about your breakfast habits and you could be in with a chance of winning an inspirational breakfast pack worth $50!
Best wishes,

Dr Sara Grafenauer
General Manager

A big shift for plant-based milks
With the growing trend for plant-based foods being driven by more and more flexitarian and vegetarian advocates, the plant-based milk category has recently seen some major shifts of its own. Our latest audit captured the movement in this category, by tracking products on shelf at the four major Australian retailers.
