This resource is a cultural adaptation of the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating and is specific to pregnant Mums.
The background is a woven pandanus mat, a traditional floor covering used at meal times or for community meetings.
A heart shaped taro leaf was chosen in place of a plate as it is a staple vegetable eaten (both root and leaves) across the Pacific.
The foods selected are similar to those included in the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating however, there are variations easily recognised by Maori and Pacific Islander people.
