National Meal Guidelines

Ground-breaking guidelines supporting innovative and flexible delivered meal programs have been released by the Australian Meals on Wheels Association.

The National Meal Guidelines were developed by the Australian Meals on Wheels Association in partnership with the Smart Foods Centre, University of Wollongong.  The guidelines represent the first nationally consistent approach to nutrition, menu planning and meal presentation for organisations providing delivered meals through the Commonwealth Home Support Programme. 

They are an excellent resource for other services providing meals for older people – in community centres, the consumer’s own kitchen, or in residential care settings.
