The Dietitians Association of Australia and Dental Health Services Victoria launched a joint position statement on oral health and nutrition in May 2016. The position statement includes practical information for dietitians, including an overview of oral health risk factors, a summary of protective features of the diet, and guidance on oral health and nutrition through the life stages. Evidence tells us there’s a lifelong synergy between diet and oral health. This position statement outlines how dietitians and other nutrition professionals, working in a range of settings, can incorporate oral health as part of their practice.
The Dietary Guidelines for all Australians page published by NHMRC provides links to Dietary Guidelines for Australian Adults and Dietary Guidelines for Children and Adolescents in Australia incorporating the Infant Feeding Guidelines for Health Workers are based on the best available scientific evidence and provide information for health professionals and the general population about healthy food choices. The use of the guidelines will encourage healthy lifestyles that will minimise the risk of the development of diet-related diseases within the Australian population.
The dietary guidelines highlight the groups of foods and lifestyle patterns that promote good nutrition and health. Each guideline deals with a key health issue and is like a piece of the good health puzzle.
