The CSIRO Healthy Diet Score report
More than 235,000 people have completed the CSIRO Healthy Diet Score survey since we launched it in 2015.
We first analysed the results a year-and-a-half later and released the CSIRO Healthy Diet Score report in 2016.
In 2023 we took a look back at all the results from 2015-2023 and found the average Australian diet score was 55 out of 100, suggesting that many of us should aim to improve our diet for a healthier lifestyle. The 2015-2023 CSIRO Healthily Diet Score report PDF (153 KB) has more insights into how Australians scored a relatively low collective score.
