The CSIRO have developed the Women’s Health & Nutrition Guide, a comprehensive book that includes way more than recipes. This thoughtful and evidence-based health guide provides specific, valuable and practical information for women throughout all ages and stages of life.
Women’s health and nutrition needs vary across life stages, and this book is developed to provide that education, to support women to adopt healthy eating and lifestyle behaviours and to adapt to women’s changing circumstances and needs.
While body weight is one risk factor for developing chronic diseases later in life, being active, eating well, not smoking and avoiding or limiting alcohol are also very important factors for maximising health and avoiding disease.
Here you will find advice on lifestyle practices to support good health, from puberty through to pregnancy and menopause, as well as 80 delicious recipes, all of which are:
- quick and easy to prepare
- suitable for the entire family
- nutritionally complete.
This is the essential guide to what women can do throughout their life, to make a difference to their long-term health and wellbeing.
