Healthy feeding tips

          If you eat or drink more than your body needs, you’ll put on weight because the energy you do not use is stored as fat. If you eat and drink too little, you’ll lose weight.

          You should also eat a wide range of foods to make sure you’re getting a balanced diet and your body is receiving all the nutrients it needs.

1. Base your meals on higher fibre starchy carbohydrates

         Starchy carbohydrates should make up just over a third of the food you eat. They include potatoes, bread, rice, pasta and cereals.

        Choose higher fibre or wholegrain varieties, such as wholewheat pasta, brown rice or potatoes with their skins on.

        They contain more fibre than white or refined starchy carbohydrates and can help you feel full for longer. Try to include at least 1 starchy food with each main meal. 

2. Eat lots of fruit and veg

           It’s recommended that you eat at least 5 portions of a variety of fruit and veg every day. They can be fresh, frozen, canned, dried or juiced.

3. Eat more fish, including a portion of oily fish

           Fish is a good source of protein and contains many Vitamins and minerals.

           Aim to eat at least 2 portions of fish a week, including at least 1 portion of oily fish.

          Oily fish are high in omega-3 fats, which may help prevent heart disease.
