The Whole Grain Week (21-27thJune)

This Whole Grain Week (21-27thJune), the Grains & Legumes Nutrition Council are encouraging Australians to make the whole grain swap – a simple dietary change that could save the Australian economy upwards of $1.4billion in healthcare and lost productivity costs, according to a new Australian-first study.

To celebrate, GLNC will be broadcasting a community service announcement on national television and radio with the help of the Sprout duo - Callum Hann of MasterChef fame and Themis Chryssidis, an Accredited Practising Dietitian.“Making the swap to whole grain is one the easiest dietary changes we can make. Enjoying 3 serves of whole grain foods each day may reduce risk of chronic disease and could save the Australian economy billions in healthcare costs – it’s a win-win!” says Ms Jaimee Hughes, Accredited Practising Dietitian and Nutrition Manager at GLNC.
