Association of fresh meat with vegetable intake


Inadequate vegetable intake is an ongoing problem. A traditional Australian family meal of ‘meat and 3 veg’ possibly results in greater vegetable consumption than common meals based around rice, pasta or bread. We wish to examine whether there is an association between higher fresh meat, fish and poultry intake, and vegetable consumption. If higher fresh meat consumption is associated with higher vegetable intakes, we have the basis for further research to look at developing interventions which may help increase vegetable intakes.
