What role does social media play? It’s huge now, we need the public upswell of support through social media to get more attention for the day and make the event bigger in the years to come.
Any plans for commercial television exposure? We would love to raise the funds to develop a community service announcement and get the message out there to more Australians next year.
What is “nude food”? It’s food that is nutritionally balanced and healthy, while also being transported rubbish free (i.e without extra plastic wraps).
Where do I go if I want more information about Nude Food Day? Back to the website –www.nudefoodday.com.au or search nude food day on Facebook.
How did the organisers discover tiffinyhall.net? We tweeted about Nude Food Day and got a retweet, so we started following you guys!
When is Nude Food Day? Wednesday October 16
Is the event nation wide? Yes, and our neighbours in NZ have also started embracing NFD.
What sort of activities are schools running? Everything from picnics at lunch time and litter audits around the school to sports carnivals during the day to raise funds and encourage activity for a healthy body.
What sort of activities are workplaces running? Most workplaces are organising communal lunchtimes where staff come together to enjoy their Nude Food lunches.
Where can I find recipe ideas? The website www.nudefoodday.com.au has some great lunch ideas – otherwise try Nutrition Australia’s website for healthy dinnertime recipes.
Any suggestions as to what you should eat on the day? Anything in its natural state – try to eat as many fruit and veggies as possible. Kids love chicken and salad wraps, with berries and yoghurt as a snack. Adults sometimes find it easier to pack last night’s leftovers in the Nude Food Movers products.
Do I have to eat nude food for breakfast, lunch or dinner? Breakfast, lunch AND dinner!
How do I get my friends and family involved? Share the website and make sure your kids school knows about it.
Can people of all ages participate? Definitely – you’re never too young or too old to eat healthy, rubbish free food!
Who is the target audience? The main audience is schools – as one of the biggest problems in Australia is the childhood obesity crisis so we want to do everything possible to show kids how to look after their bodies with healthy food and physical activity. Schools are also the most obvious place to teach our next generation how to take responsibility for the health of our planet.
