Ministry of Health releases new eating and activity guidelines

28 October 2015

The Ministry of Health has revised its Eating and Activity Guidelines for adults.
 

The guidelines provide evidence-based advice on nutrition and physical activity, including maintaining a healthy body weight.


Changes included in the new guidelines include a focus on eating "whole" foods rather than highly processed foods.
 

It's the first time the new guidelines have combined the Ministry’s nutrition and physical activity advice into one document.


The guidelines are designed to complement the Ministry of Health's work on childhood obesity.
