Healthy eating: Five top tips you’ll enjoy

HEALTHY eating is all about eating what we need not what we want. We were all brought up to finish the food on our plates, but sometimes it’s more than we really need. As a national partner of the Department of Health’s Change4Life campaign we’re working with their experts to spread the healthy eating message, and they have some great tips on how to eat well. Here’s five I’ve picked out for you:

Share packaged foods

Many foods and drinks are packaged for two adults sharing, so if you’re eating by yourself avoid temptation and save some for later. Don’t give a whole one to a child – let them share a bag of crisps, or save some to ensure healthy eating.

Eat a little slower

It takes time for our brains to register we’re full, so try to eat more slowly. If you’re eating with friends or family try pacing yourself to the slowest eater.

Super start your day

Don’t be tempted to skip breakfast, even if you’re trying to lose weight. If you have a healthy eating breakfast in the morning you’re less likely to want to snack before lunch.

Spot the difference

Swap a big dinner plate for a smaller one and you’ll have a smaller portion. It will also look as if you have more food on your plate too.

Max your pocket, not your drink!

Extra large whole milk lattes or cappuccinos may seem like value for money, but they also contain more calories. Try swapping for a regular size coffee made with lower fat milk – less calories (and it’ll save you money).
