Get set for DAA’s 10th Australia’s Healthy Weight Week,13-19 Feb! Check out #AHWW2017 events & get the cookbook
AHWW is an initiative of the Dietitians Association of Australia, raising awareness of the importance of achieving and maintaining a healthy weight and lifestyle.

Events are held in February each year to help promote this message and encourage people to see an Accredited Practising Dietitian to assist with food, nutrition and lifestyle management.

As part of Australia’s Healthy Weight Week (13-19 February 2017), Australian dietitians want to inspire all Aussies to cook at home more often to achieve a healthy weight. Run by the Dietitians Association of Australia, this important week is all about getting the right advice and support for those looking to be a healthy weight.

With many Australians aspiring to eat better in the New Year, the campaign aims to get people cooking at home more often. Research shows that people who prepare food at home are more likely to eat smaller portions and take in fewer kilojoules and less fat, salt and sugar. And in turn, this is more likely to result in a healthy weight.

This year’s AHWW will be the biggest yet with more events than ever being run by Accredited Practising Dietitians. Why not attend a local event and pick up some great giveaways and tips.

Visit the Australia’s Healthy Weight Week website to download a free recipe book, get tips for healthy eating, including a 7 Day Meal Plan and sign up for their regular newsletter or join the Instagram Competition.
