UNDERCOVER ONIONS: THE HIDDEN INGREDIENT DELIVERING A SECRET SERVE OF NUTRIENTS
An alarming 94.6% of Australian children aged 2-18 years are not getting the recommended daily serves of vegetables*, and, that is where the humble onion can give parents an easy win in the kitchen as they count towards your daily intake.
Last week, Horticulture Innovation Australia (Hort Innovation) launched the Australian Onions ‘Secret Serve’ campaign, aimed at helping parents give their kids an extra serve of vegetable - without them knowing.
The national initiative will focus on the creative use of onions in everyday meals and will include family friendly recipes, tips and tricks for storing and preparing onions, as well as recipe cards and in-store cooking demonstrations.
