Healthy Barbecue Guide

If you live in Australia, then there's a good chance you love a good barbecue.

A simple, traditional Aussie barbie usually consists of sausages, white bread and tomato sauce. But this meal is not only low in fibre, it's also high in saturated fat, oil and salt.

Healthy Together Wodonga has developed a Healthy Barbecue Guide to help you make easy changes and offer more nutritious options at your next barbecue.

The guide includes healthy menu ideas and basic catering tips.

It also includes a cheat sheet offering seven easy tips for a healthier barbecue.

Good nutrition and eating a wide variety of healthy foods are vital for a happy, healthy and active lifestyle. It can also reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and some cancers.

We acknowledge and thank the OPAL program and Healthy Together Mildura for their help in the development of the Healthy Barbecue Guide. OPAL is a joint resource of the Australian Government, SA Health and Local Governments.
