Veg for mind and body small

Vegetables.co.nz has released an updated version of its Vegetables for your mind and body poster. This popular resource is widely used by teachers and health promoters. It can be downloaded from here.

The Nutrition Foundation of New Zealand answers this question on supplements:

"I see so many supplements for sale, do I need to be taking them, and which ones?"

If you eat a healthy, balanced diet this should cover all your vitamin and mineral needs. The beauty of food is that it contains many other compounds which work together with the vitamins and minerals for health – compounds such as antioxidants, fibre and phytochemicals. A supplement only provides a large amount of a single vitamin or mineral. Many studies have shown these high doses do not work as effectively as getting the vitamin or mineral from foods. Supplements may be recommended in specific cases. If you think you need supplements, consult your doctor or a registered dietitian.

Vegetables.co.nz produces a wide range of evidence-based, peer-reviewed resources. These include posters, leaflets, videos and can be viewed in the Education and Resources section of the vegetables.co.nz website, and on the vegetables.co.nz’s youtube channel.
