Seasonal Food Guide

Eating seasonally could be one of the most delicious ways to help look after the planet. 

As well as supporting local growers and improving sustainability, loading your trolley with in- season fruit and veggies is often cheaper, tastier and it could be great for your health, too.

Shifting your focus to eating seasonally naturally keeps fruit and veggies front-of-mind. It means eating fresh produce at its best and it helps encourage a more varied diet that provides plenty of vitamins and minerals. Teach your kids about seasonal eating and other food skills at 12 before 12. 

So, how can you eat seasonally?  

To help get you started, we’ve created an interactive Australian Seasonal Food Guide. With a simple click you can see what’s in season now, learn nutrition facts and discover yummy, healthy recipes to make.
