The CSIRO assessed the eating habits of 40,000 Australians and found that most ate junk food daily, a rate three times higher than recommended. The Nation's diet score was rated as 61 out of 100.

The survey evaluated each person's diet based on frequency, variety and quality of essential food groups against the Australian Healthy Eating Guidelines.

It is possible to now measure the quality of your eating habits against the National Guidelines, also taking into account gender and age and generate a score on a 100 point scale. Those who complete the on-line assessment will receive feedback on how their diet could be improved.
