THIS MONTH’S SPECIAL
YOUNG AUSTR ALIAN WOMEN who
want to be healthier need to grab an apron and
get cre ative in the kitchen, dietitian s sugg est.
A recent sur vey of young women,
commissioned by Australia’s peak nutrition
body, the Dietitians A s sociation of Austra lia
(DAA), found while three quarters of the
women sur veyed (76%) enjoy c ooking to
some degree, many still opt for regula r
take away meals like pizza, fast food chain
dinners and fish a nd chips.
The Newspoll sur vey, of 200 young
women aged 18-24, found one of the hurdles
young women face in eating well is that they
perceive take away foods as convenient and
ea sily available, compared with making a
meal at home.
DA A Spoke sperson Profe ssor Clare
Collins said: “With Austra lia in the grip of
an obesity epidemic, and younger women
particularly prone to weight gain, c ooking
a proper main meal at home could be
the an swer to improving diet a nd weight
problems in this age group.”

preparing food or who cook more often are
more likely to meet nutrition guidelines.
And on the flip side, Professor Collins
said a dislike of cooking is linked with a
lower intake of fruit and vegetable s, a nd
eating food prepared away from the home
and on the run is associated with a poorer
diet, higher in total fat a nd saturated fat.
“Food cooked at home is typically more
nutritious tha n that prepared away from
home. It’s easier to get in lots of variety by
cooking at home using fresh ingredients,
and it can be fast if you plan ahead.
“At home, you can pick and choose your

ingredients so you can add healthy flavours from
lean cuts of meat, vegetables, herbs and spices,
and go easy on the less healthy ingredients. That
way, you’ll get important nutrients like protein,
iron and calcium, w ithout overdoing the
nasties like saturated fat, added sugar and salt,’”
sa id Professor Collins.
