What’s your earliest food memory? Was it baking with Nan or did your parents pass on family recipes? Often I find myself peeling an apple just the way Mum taught me as a little girl, or making one of my dad’s famous omelettes. Developing cooking skills at an earlier age does far more than equip children for when it’s finally time to move out. New research suggests that confident young cooks make healthier adults, and eat more veg and less fast food later in life. On page 31, we go back to basics with our guide to healthy cooking.

Australian Healthy Food Guide @hfgaustralia #cookwithhfg hfgaustralia @HFGAustralia Finding the missing link I loved your article on fertility nutrition (March, 2018). I think nutrition is often forgotten factor in the fertility puzzle, but it has such a massive impact pre-conception, and also during pregnancy. Everyone who is planning a pregnancy needs to know about this, so good job for putting it out there! Emily Orchard, VIC Go for liquid gold! I recently read the ‘Ask the experts: coconut oil’ article ( HFG website).
