The term “superfood” has been a marketing favourite and overhyped by industry. Think about the claims made for kale, acai, black rice, kombucha, hemp, matcha, maca, spirulina and maqui berries. Not forgetting coconut flour (really anything coconut) or chia.

But what is meant by superfoods and how do they actually stack up against the claims? What can and can’t be considered a superfood?

Join us during National Nutrition Week to meet and hear from renowned author and accredited practising dietitian and nutritionist, Catherine Saxelby. At the same time, you’ll learn about our message of Try for Five (5 serves of vegetables) and how we’re progressing with vegetable power.

Catherine has published 12 books on food and nutrition, including her most recent update 'Complete Food and Nutrition Companion, The Ultimate A-Z Guide'.  As one of Australia’s leading authorities on nutrition, Catherine is a seasoned presenter and a pro at cutting through nutrition nonsense.
