Healthy Eating

By changing just a couple of your eating habits and eating a variety of foods you can get more of the vital nutrients your body needs while achieving or coming closer to your 5 A DAY fruit and vegetables target, and lower your calorie intake.

The Key to healthy eating is to eat a variety of foods in the right amounts from the four main food groups:

  • Bread, cereals and potatoes
  • Fruit and vegetables
  • Meat, fish and alternatives
  • Milk and dairy
