Be Treatwise

We all love a treat, and chocolates and lollies bring pleasure by tantalising our taste buds. Confectionery is a fun part of our lives. It is also a food to be enjoyed in moderation as part of a balanced diet.

Of course we want you to enjoy brownies and any other treats you like.
But we suggest being treatwise and consuming in moderation and in balance so you can enjoy a healthy life.
The role of treat foods
It has been long recognised that good nutrition is very important in the growth and development of children, both physically and mentally, and for the well-being of adults. This is reflected in the dietary guidelines that promote healthy eating. Children and adults may enjoy a treat – such as brownies or chocolate – now and then, as those foods increase the pleasure of daily eating.
Of course, balanced eating means that treat foods are to be eaten occasionally, while other foods like fruit, vegetable and grainy foods are to be eaten each day.
 
Did you know, the size of your treat matters?
The 'Australian Guide to Healthy Eating' (Commonwealth of Australia 1998) suggests typical serving sizes for treats as being:
  1. 4 plain sweet biscuits
  2. 40 g cake
  3. 25 g chocolate
  4. 30 g potato crisps
  5. 12 hot chips
  6. 50 g jelly beans, jelly snakes
Some argue that using treat foods as a reward for good behaviour or making a large fuss about treat foods, may actually increase children's desire for them. They are foods to be enjoyed in sensible amounts. A small treat can be enjoyed by all.
 
   
How much is too much?
The 'Australian Guide to Healthy Eating' (Commonwealth of Australia 1998) says that children aged 4-11 years may enjoy 1-2 treat serves a day, while adolescents 12-18 years may have 1-3 treat serves a day.
Active adults can also afford to eat up to 2-3 treat serves daily. One of the great benefits of being active is that you can enjoy the occasional treat without concerns about weight gain.

Understanding energy
Food provides us with the energy to do daily tasks, exercise and keep our hearts beating and lungs breathing. This energy is measured in kilojoules (or calories; there are about 4.18 kilojoules in a calorie). If we eat too much energy, we do not become more energetic. Rather, all those extra kilojoules (kJs) (or calories (Cals)) are converted into body fat. You can see that it is important to get our energy balance right, so that energy from food (kJs or Cals) is the same as the energy burned up during the day through our activity.

People of all ages benefit from regular physical activity. Health authorities encourage everyone to be active for at least 30 minutes each day. This can include sport, taking the dog for a walk, playing with the children, gardening, using the stairs instead of lifts, or simply leaving the car behind when you go to the shops. It also helps you to use up the energy taken in from the food you consume and ensures that an excess intake of energy is not stored in the body as fat. If you are active, you can enjoy a wide range of foods. Be treatwise.
