Open Letter to the Government of Australia

A Healthy Future for our Children

Introduction

The aim of this document is to assist readers to make informed decisions about national health and nutrition policy and guide them to achieve positive physical and mental health outcomes for Australians.

It prompted me to write to the minister and share my thoughts.  I am not really hopeful that he will even see it but nothing ventured, nothing gained.
