Nutritious and delicious healthy nachos recipe

Sometimes the best way to get our daily nutritional needs is to simply recreate a healthier take on some traditional dinners.

In The health of Queenslanders 2020 report by the State of Queensland (Queensland Health), the report uncovered that only 8 per cent of adults and 4.6 per cent of children were meeting recommendations for vegetable consumption. Making sure you incorporate vegetables in meals and snacks throughout the day is essential to improved health.

In this recipe you will find a few more veggies added in to make sure you are reaching your daily serves of 5 veg. And how many serves should children have each day? The recommended serves of vegetables for children depends on their age but on average should be between 2 and 5 serves of veggies every day, and 1 – 2 serves of fruit.

For a detailed list on recommended daily serves of veggies your child should eat, check out the Eat for Health website, with information broken down by age and gender.
