Notes

When Nutrition Australia unveiled its 'new and improved' healthy food pyramid earlier this year, legumes was the one food group that appeared twice! Rich in protein, carbohydrates, dietary fibre, minerals and vitamins, these healthy and cost effective vegetables should form part of a daily diet for both children and adults alike. These days the obesity levels in children are rising and Australian kids are eating more foods high in fat and sugars. Cleverly incorporating legumes and other healthy vegetables into their daily diet is one way of improving overall health and wellbeing.

  • Really creative healthy snack and easily a veggie burger or meal if you add bread or salad.
