Abstract

This publication is the sixth release of information from the nutrition component of the 2011-12 National Nutrition and Physical Activity Survey (NNPAS). It is intended to complement the Nutrition First Results and Usual Nutrient Intakes publications with newly developed information from Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) about consumption of the Five Food Groups, based on the 2013 Australian Dietary Guidelines (ADG) from the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC). It compares usual consumption with ADG recommendations of servings for specific age-sex groups. Additionally, it describes the contribution of food sub-groupings to the total number of serves of the five food groups as well as the most common food/beverage sources for each food group.
