    With all the media around vitamin and mineral supplements it can be confusing to know what and when you should or shouldn’t be taking supplements. Supplements should not be taken to replace a healthy diet, as a substitute to conventional medicine or as a treatment for stress. Most people can meet all nutrient requirements through a healthy and balanced diet. There are, however, individuals that may require supplements due to increased requirements such as pregnant or breastfeeding women, those following a vegetarian diet, alcoholics, elderly and/or those with malabsorption issues. An Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) can help you to plan a nutritious diet to meet all your nutrient requirements. To find an APD near you visit the Dietitians Association of Australia website:
