Take action

  • Have your say on added sugar

    Added sugars are hidden in everyday foods, and current labelling makes it virtually impossible to work out which foods are right for you.

    But state and federal government have proposed some big changes that could make it easier to tell how much added sugar is in your food.

    Tell us what kind of added sugar labels you want to see on packs, and we'll make sure you're heard by the ministers in charge.

Our test kitchen

  • How we test kitchen appliances

    With 30 years' experience, our home economist Fiona Mair knows her way around a kitchen.

    In our kitchen lab, Fiona and tester Chantelle Dart (pictured) test everything from ovens and cooktops to benchtop appliances like hand mixers.

    They bake, blend, chop, roll, pulverise and puree in order to tell you which brands and models do the job best.
