How much carbohydrate do we need?

The Ministry of Health recommends 50-55% of an adult’s energy intake comes from carbohydrates, but less than half of adult Kiwis achieve this recommendation. Eating at least 6 servings of bread and cereals (preferably wholegrain i.e. not refined) and 5 servings of fruit and vegetables each day will help you reach the recommended level.
