Nutritional Information Playing Cards

Australia’s horticulture industry is a producer of premium safe fruits, vegetables, nuts, flowers, turf and nursery products. The International Year of Fruits and Vegetables 2021: Fruits and vegetables, your dietary essentials (#IYFV2021) raises awareness of the important role of fruits and vegetables in human nutrition, food security and health.

These playing cards (2.4MB, pdf) are to print and make at home or school. They celebrate, promote and raise awareness of Australia’s fruits, vegetables and nuts and the IYFV2021.

The card suits represent:

♥ Tropical fruits and nuts;
♠ Temperate fruits;
♦ Australian Indigenous fruits, vegetables and nuts; and
♣ Vegetables.

Each card shows the nutritional information for 100g of fruit, vegetable or nuts. The game is played by players comparing the values of the energy, carbohydrate, protein, fat or dietary fibre in their hand of cards.
