Grouping foods into what’s healthy and what’s not can be simple, but when it comes to a balanced diet, it’s better to look at your approach as a whole. No single food can give you all of the nutrients you need, so it’s time to mix it up and add variety to get the most from your meals
Healthy eating is getting the right balance of energy and nutrients within our diet to allow us to live healthy lives and reduce our risk of disease.
Too much energy from calories within our diets can lead to unhealthy weight gain which increases the risk of diseases such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Secondly a lack of vitamins and minerals in our diet can lead to risk of deficiency causing health problems.
Look at for our nutrition labeling on the front of packs to easily find out the amount of calories in your food.
Weight gain occurs when we take in (through food, drink and alcohol) more energy from calories than we use (through daily activity and exercise).
