The PRSP should state the development priorities and specify the policies, programmes and resources needed to meet the goals.

Nutrition Data System for Research NDSR is a Windows-based nutrition analysis program designed for the collection and analyses of hour dietary recalls, food records, menus, and recipes. Calculation of nutrient intake occur immediately providing data per ingredient, food, meal, and day in report and analysis file formats.

The software includes a dietary supplement assessment module so that nutrient intake from both food and supplemental sources may be captured and quantified. Visit the Nutrition Coordinating Center for more information about the Nutrition Data System for Research, including detailed features of the software and database, license options, support service, training workshops and certification.

The Australian Dietary Guidelines use the best available scientific evidence to provide information on the types and amounts of foods, food groups and dietary patterns that aim to promote health and wellbeing, reduce the risk of diet-related conditions and reduce the risk of chronic disease. The Australian Dietary Guidelines are for use by health professionals, policy makers, educators, food manufacturers, food retailers and researchers and encourage healthy dietary patterns to promote and maintain the nutrition-related health and wellbeing of the Australian population.

The content of the Australian Dietary Guidelines applies to all healthy Australians, as well as those with common diet-related risk factors such as being overweight. They do not apply to people who need special dietary advice for a medical condition, nor to the frail elderly. A website on the Eat for Health Program is at www.

Through the guidance of an expert working committee, this work will consider the practicality of providing specific definitions of discretionary foods and drinks. NHMRC will use this guidance to consider a more standardised approach to identifying discretionary foods and drinks across all settings, including community, industry, consumer and healthcare environments. As part of the review, the NHMRC will be consulting with key users, including health professionals, government and industry representatives to ensure the outcomes are relevant for promoting the health of Australians across all settings.

The Nutrient Reference Values for Australia and New Zealand Including the Recommended Dietary Intakes NRVs outline the intake levels of essential nutrients considered adequate to meet the nutritional needs of healthy people for prevention of nutrient deficiencies. The document is intended for use by health professionals to assess the likelihood of inadequate intake in individuals or groups of people.

The NRVs will be reviewed in an ongoing manner as resources allow. These were published in March and September respectively. Further information is available on the NRV website. These reviews will be undertaken using a phased approach over three years:. The reviews will be overseen by a Steering Group Advisory Committee. Nutrient specific working groups have also been engaged to advise on the review of each nutrient. Skip to main content.
