Nutrition Resources for Patients

Resources to help people follow a heart healthy eating pattern in their daily lives.

Poor diet is the leading risk factor for heart disease. There is a widespread misunderstanding that most Australians follow a healthy diet, when in reality most of them are not meeting the Australian Dietary Guidelines. 

The resources below encourage and make it easy for patients to include the Heart Foundation’s heart healthy eating tips in their daily routine.
