Eat better...!

10 ways to eat better...

  1. Try to eat 3, regular meals a day
  2. Make sure you eat a complete, nourishing breakfast : it is the most important meal of the day!

  3. Take time to eat meals slowly (min 20mins) whilst sitting down and never just before going to bed

  5. Drink 1 to 2 L of water or herbal teas every day, avoiding sugary, fizzy drinks

  6. Eat at least 5 portions of fruit and/or vegetables of various colours every day (1 portion = 1 handful = 120g for an adult)

  8. Eat 3 portions of dairy products and 1 to 2 portions of fish, meat, poultry or eggs every day…
