Portion Size Working Group

Page last updated: 21 February 2017

The Portion Size Working Group will undertake activities that contribute to increasing intake of core foods and decreasing intake of discretionary foods, in line with the Healthy Food Partnership objective to rebalance dietary patterns in Australia to more closely align with the Australian Dietary Guidelines, by assessing the effectiveness and feasibility of portion size strategies for both core and discretionary foods in a variety of sectors (retail and food service).

Key activities of the Portion Size Working Group will be to define the key (relevant) terms for portion size and develop a suite of activities for businesses, governments and non-government organisations to implement, as they are able.

Where practical, activities of the Portion Size Working Group will be based on national and international portion size initiatives that are underpinned by evidence of success.
