We believe that understanding food and nutrition is critical in ensuring a healthy life.

Eating vegetables provides health benefits – people who eat more vegetables and fruits as part of an overall healthy diet are likely to have a reduced risk of some chronic diseases. Vegetables provide nutrients vital for the health and maintenance of your body.

The foundation layers

The foundation layers of the Healthy Eating Pyramid include the three plant-based food groups:

Vegetables & Legumes






These layers make up the largest portion of the Pyramid because plant foods should make up the largest portion of our diet – around 70% of what we eat!

Plant foods contain a wide variety of nutrients like vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They are also the main source of carbohydrates and fiber in our diet.

Older children, teens, and adults should aim to have at least 2 serves of fruit and 5 serves of vegetables or legumes each day.





We all know what it’s like…

Your business is going great (or not… COVID-19); you’re doing the things you know. But you also know that there are some pinch points in your business; some areas that could be safer, some processes you need to introduce.
But you’re frozen: I don’t know what to do? I don’t know where to start? Will the business afford it? Am I putting myself or business at risk?
