Public Consultation on draft Appendix to the Australian Dietary Guidelines: Dietary Guidelines through an environmental lens

Closed on Friday, 2 November 2012, 05:00pm (AEDT). Submissions are no longer being accepted.

The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) has released the draft Appendix to the Australian Dietary Guidelines: The Dietary Guidelines through an environmental lens   You are invited under paragraph 13(d) of the National Health and Medical Research Council Act (1992) to make a submission to the NHMRC about the draft document.

The Australian Dietary Guidelines underwent public consultation from December 2011 to 29 February 2012. To finalise the Guidelines, NHMRC seeks comment on the draft Appendix which aims to suggest an environmental perspective on the Dietary Guidelines.  This may assist health practitioners answer queries from their clients about this issue. The need for such an appendix was identified at public consultation.

The draft Guidelines, as released for public consultation, are still on the NHMRC website, should you need to refer to them. However, note that the latest draft of the key Guideline recommendations are incorporated into the draft Appendix. As such they are slightly different to the public consultation version. Please note that these are still subject to changes advised by the Council of NHMRC until the Australian Dietary Guidelines are completed later in 2012. NHMRC will release the full  Australian Dietary Guidelines once this appendix is finalised.

Please note that comment is only invited on the draft appendix.

NHMRC does not seek comment on the key Dietary Guideline recommendations within the draft appendix, nor the public consultation

draft of the Australian Dietary Guidelines.
