The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) is seeking comments on: 

a) how the 2013 Australian Dietary Guidelines (the Guidelines) are used, and 

b) relevant topics to be considered and possibly included in the review of the Guidelines.

Why is NHMRC seeking comments?

NHMRC is reviewing the Guidelines. As part of the review, NHMRC will assess evidence on priority topics related to food and nutrition. An important step in the review is identifying relevant topics in food and nutrition that may be considered for inclusion in the review. This could include new topics not included in the current Guidelines or updating existing topics from the current Guidelines.

As part of the review process, NHMRC will consider how the current Guidelines are used and who is using them. This includes the Eat for Health resources such as the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating.

Where can I find more information?

More information is available on the NHMRC website. This webpage will be updated as the review progresses.
