Next week is Macular Degeneration Awareness week and the theme this year is how is your Macula?

Good nutrition is an important in maintaining macular health and to highlight this the foundation is looking for contributions to a Macula Menu.

1) Lean meats, poultry, fish, eggs, tofu, nuts and seeds
2) Vegetables, legumes and beans
3) Fruit
4) Grain (cereal) foods, which are wholegrain and/or high fibre varieties (low GI)
