The basics of good nutrition
Variety is the key to a healthy, balanced diet, which means lots of interesting food and lots of flavour. Some people refer to ‘good’ and ‘bad’ foods, but there are no good and bad foods, only good diets and bad diets. Eating a variety of food from the core food groups, in the right balance, is what healthy eating is all about. Try to eat a selection of foods from the following food groups:
- Vegetables and fruits – including fresh, canned and dried varieties.
- Breads, cereals, rice, pasta, noodles.
- Reduced fat or low fat dairy products like milk, yogurt, cheese and custard.
- Lean meats, poultry, fish, seafood, eggs, unsalted nuts and seeds.
- Small amount of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated oils, margarine spreads, mayonnaise & dressings.
Occasional treats for your pleasure.
