Plant protein, from foods like nuts, uniquely benefits human and planetary health. Yet, most Australians fall short of the daily target of these foods.
Only 2% of Australians eat 30g of nuts a day, with the mean intake just 4.6g.

The ever-strengthening body of evidence shows nuts are a key food within healthy dietary patterns, with an impressive range of health benefits.

The review of the Australian Dietary Guidelines represents a real opportunity to shift the eating patterns of Australians for the better, including to:

  1. Re-emphasise diversity and variety within food groups
  2. Prioritise plant-based protein foods
  3. Elevate nuts as important to eat every day (minimum 30g daily).
