Tips For Healthy Eating.

  • Don’t skip breakfast.

A Healthy Breakfast is an important part of a balanced diet, and provides some of the vitamins and minerals we need for good health.

  • Don’t get thirsty.

We need to drink about 1.6 to 2 litres of fluid everyday to stop us getting dehydrated. This is in addition to the fluid we get from the food we eat. Water and low-fat milk are healthier choices. Try to avoid sugary soft and fizzy drinks that are high in added sugars and calories, and are also bad for teeth.

  • Get active and be healthy.

Eating healthy plays a very important role in maintaining a healthy weight. Being overweight can lead to health conditions like certain cancers, heart disease and stroke. Being underweight could also affect your health.

  • Eat less salt.

Adults and children over 11 should eat no more than 6g of salt a day. Younger children should have even less. About three-quarters of the salt we eat is already in the food we buy, such as breakfast cereals, soups, breads and sauces.

  • Eat more fish.

Fish is a good source of protein and contains many vitamins and minerals. Aim to eat at least two portions of fish a week, including at least one portion of oily fish. Oily fish contains omega-3 fats, which may help to prevent heart disease.

  • Eat lots of fruits and vegetables.

It’s recommended that we eat at least five portions of different types of fruits and vegetables a day.

  • Eat more starchy food.

Most of us should eat more starchy foods: try to include at least one starchy food with each main meal. Starchy foods include potatoes, cereals, pasta, rice and bread. Choose wholegrain varieties (or eat potatoes with their skins on) when you can: they contain more fibre.
