Coles and Heart Foundation team up for healthier Aussies

A survey by the Heart Foundation has revealed that 54% of Australians have changed their diets in lockdown, put on weight, let themselves go or are feeling sluggish and slow. The survey of 500 people also found that 63% of respondents have changed their eating habits, and of these, one-third are eating ‘worse’ in lockdown. One in five people are consuming larger serves, while 46% of respondents who said their diet had changed are feeling frustrated or guilty about it.

The Heart Foundation and Coles are teaming up to encourage home cooks to create and share heart-healthy recipes in their kitchens, to improve their own wellbeing and raise funds to help save lives from heart disease. The Cook with Heart Challenge encourages people to make five or 10 heart-healthy recipes in 10 days, and raise money to fight heart disease.

Coles has provided 20 easy and delicious heart-healthy recipes for participants to download, cook and share. Coles will also match the funds raised to a maximum of $100,000. Participants can go into one of two draws to win Coles gift vouchers, with a total of $5000 worth available to win. Those interested in the Cook with Heart challenge can sign up by visiting and share their heart healthy creations by using #cookwithheart and #coles.
