A Guide to Modern Menu Planning

It seems that there’s always someone telling us that we’re not eating healthily. Too much sugar, too much fat, too many carbs – too much altogether!

This is not new. In 1937, Queenslander Noel Gutteridge started to outline how to put together a healthy menu plan, so that people’s diets could be balanced. He copyrighted his draft idea, and that manuscript is now in the National Archives of Australia collection.

He wrote: ‘We do not not enough fresh milk, fruit, salad vegetables, eggs and cheese. We depend too much on white bread, cakes, biscuits, ice cream, jam, treacle, honey and sweet foods.’

It’s possible that things haven’t changed that much.
