Which is the best Australian food?
Australia is ranked number one in terms of overall food quality according to a report from the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO).
The ranking is based on the amount of nutrients people can eat per day.
It takes into account how much of each food group people consume per day, including the amount consumed per calorie.
It is based mainly on the food in the Australian food system, including foods such as fruit, vegetables, cereals, milk and dairy products.
The report, released on Friday, shows that Australians are eating about the same amount of food per person per day as people in other countries.
The FAO report also shows that Australia has more people with diabetes than most countries and has more than one person per person who has type 2 diabetes.
It says the number of people with type 2 is on the rise and the prevalence of diabetes is increasing globally.
“Our food system is the strongest in the world, with a range of food products, including food, milk, meat and eggs, all of which are very high in nutrients,” Dr Andrew Forrest, the FAO’s food and nutrition advisor, said.
“The key to improving health is to eat a variety of foods and get enough fibre.”
There are many ways to do this including regular exercise, a healthy diet and good eating habits, but it’s the food system that makes it possible.
“The report also found that the proportion of people living in rural areas has risen significantly in the last decade and that many people now eat more fruits, vegetables and whole grains than in the past.
Dr Forrest said the rise in rural Australia was linked to population growth.”

That means they eat more fruit, vegetable and whole grain than they used to and the average adult in rural Queensland is eating a higher proportion of these foods than people living further away.”
