Healthy Eating Tips
 
 
 

 

 

 

Healthy eating should be for life. Daily eating should include a variety of foods, including vegetables, fruits and wholegrain products. Chose low fat dairy products, lean meats, poultry, fish and legumes.

Drink lots of water each day and do not use salt in cooking. Reduce sugar as much as possible and alcohol in moderation. Good nutrition is only part of a healthy life style. We should also consider taking regular physical exercise, not smoking and reducing stress in our lives.

Food may be divided into five main groups:

Fruit and Vegetables
Have at least five portions of fruit and vegetables per day, A portion of fruit is a piece of fruit such as an apple, banana, or a pear. A portion of vegetables is 2 – 3 tablespoons or a bowl of salad.

Bread, Cereals, Pasta and Potatoes
Starchy foods should be the main part of all meals and snacks. Wholegrain starchy foods are higher in fibre which helps to prevent constipation and other digestive problems.

Milk and dairy Foods
Choose low fat milk and try low fat yogurts, light crème fraiche, low fat fromage frais and low fat soft cheeses such as Quark. Try lower fat cheeses such as Edam. We need some dairy foods to provide us with calcium for healthy bones and teeth.

Meat, Fish and Alternatives
Proteins should make up to 40% of your meal. Protein is essential for cell repair and replacement. Choose poultry without skin or lean meats. Fish, twice a week. Pulses such as baked beans, buttered beans or lentils. These should be eaten regularly and will help to control blood glucose levels. Soya products and nuts are also a good source of protein,

Foods containing Fats and Sugar
All oils are 100% fat. Grill, poach or dry roast when ever possible. Choose monounsaturated oils such as olive oil or rapeseed oil when you do need to use one. Unsaturated fats are better for the heart. Use less butter and margarine or choose a low fat spread. Avoid snacks such as crisps or biscuits. Diets do not need to be sugar free to be healthy but aim for low sugar products. Use artificial sweeteners.
