I‘ve just sampled all of the finalists in this year’s Healthy Food Guide Awards — all 44 of them! Joining me were some brave companions: our dietitian Brooke Longfield, along with Dr Joanna McMillan and Catherine Saxelby, who also dipped their tasting spoons into various breakfast cereals, hot dinners and sweet snacks, as we compared and analysed the healthiest foods of 2016. And while our spoons may have been small, we’d all like a little lie down now, thanks. You can see all the winners on page 29. The products in our awards are all intended to augment those fundamentals that form the basis of a healthy diet — fresh fruit and vegies. So why are we hailing packaged foods? We all need some of them — think bread, breakfast cereal,…

Australian Healthy Food Guide @hfgaustralia #cookwithhfg hfgaustralia @HFGAustralia Bringing it down Loved the article ‘5 easy swaps to lower your cholesterol’ (Sept, 2016). I have a family history of high cholesterol and have always considered it a chore to deal with. Your article had some really easy and achievable ideas. Thank you! Caroline Cottrill, VIC Tummy friendly I loved Hayley Lewis’ story regarding IBS (‘What’s your IBS trigger?’ Sept, 2016) as I also suffer from it. I thought fruit was ok, too, but found it caused me some pain. Great to see ways to deal with it. Amanda McFarland, VIC Tick tock … Loved the insight in ‘What to eat to slow ageing’ (Sept, 2016).

WE SAID: New findings show food allergies may be minimised by introducing eggs and peanuts to babies from four months old. YOU REPLIED: • It’s something that the 1940s, 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s mums knew all along. We introduced egg, peanut butter etc., at around the 4-month mark, if not earlier. Marina Buchmann • Genetics play a huge part in allergies. As our daughter gets older, her readings for tree nuts are getting higher. Michelle Deviney-Travis • Perhaps a lot of the allergies are occurring because so many of our foods are sprayed, treated, extremely processed, etc. Charmaine Lower • What is equally or more concerning is our germ-free environments. Around the globe there are currently over 100 autoimmune diseases and this number is rising. This needs to stop. Anne Weston…
